It gives me great pleasure to announce the expansion of the Articulation of Credit Transfer (ACT) project, with funding from the Petrie Foundation added to existing funding from the Heckscher Foundation. Now, led by Ithaka S+R (Martin Kurzweil) and The City University of New York, we are helping 7 CUNY colleges facilitate the transfer of credits when students move from one CUNY college to another, including by expanding use of Transfer Explorer, our online tool that lets anyone see how credits will transfer among CUNY colleges.
