These issues include:
  • college-by-college variation in subject area and unit requirements
  • the fact that many colleges and universities prefer their own transfer requirements rather than accepting the associates degree as qualifying students for transfer
  • the need to keep up with high technology in vocational associates degree programs
  • the desirability of competency-based programs that certify the learning outcomes of associates degree programs
  • the need for more honor sections to attract and retain gifted students
  • the types of courses for terminal two year programs are not adequate (or not transferable) for a four year college
.In light of these issues, Koltai recommends that colleges establish testing and placement procedures for entering students, specify competency standards for degree graduates, improve the pre-service and in-service professional development of community college faculty, and establish associates degree committees to work with faculty, students, four-year institutions and businesses in improving counseling, job-placement, and transfer.^ Transfer degrees are designed to allow the student to move on to a four-year college after finishing the associate's degree.
