8 Colleges to Model New Types of Student Records

October 21, 2015

Eight colleges and universities have been chosen to participate in a pilot project designed to create new ways to reflect students' academic and other performance. The project, led by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers and NASPA: Student Affairs Professionals in Higher Education, is funded with nearly $1.3 million from the Lumina Foundation. Eight institutions (see below) that have experimented with competency-based education or other new ways to gauge students' academic progress have committed to develop new comprehensive student records for some or all of their students.

The eight institutions are:

  • Elon University
  • Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
  • Quinsigamond Community College
  • Stanford University
  • University of Houston-Downtown
  • University of Maryland University College
  • University of South Carolina
  • University of Wisconsin Colleges and University of Wisconsin-Extension
