Bill Would Require Public Information About Transfers

September 22, 2022

A bill introduced by U.S. Representative Joaquin Castro, a Texas Democrat, would require colleges to release more information about transfer policies, The Texas Tribune reported.

The bill would require two-year and four-year colleges to post information about transfer deadlines for admissions and financial aid, as well as a list of all the colleges at or from which a student’s credits are guaranteed to be accepted.

Castro said the bill would help students “save valuable time and money” as they pursue degrees.
