The participating institutions in Interstate Passport® Phase I (pilot) included the Utah System of Higher Education and pairs of institutions (two-year and four-year) in California, Hawaii, North Dakota, and Oregon. This phase allowed us to develop the model for creating agreement among institutions in multiple states on lower-division general education learning outcomes and transfer-level proficiency criteria for use with the Passport structure for transfer. Faculty representatives serving on the interstate faculty teams from these teams focused on three foundational skill areas: oral communication, written communication, and qualitative literacy. All states and institutions were volunteers, and several institutions became signatories to the Phase I agreement (as denoted by an asterisk below). These signatories piloted the implementation of the Passport Phase I structure.
