Enrollment surge, transfer woes for KCTCS

On the one hand, the Kentucky Community and Technical College Sustem has 18 percent more students than it had this time a year ago. That's an impressive step step up. If the system receives no increase in state funding, it makes sense that it will have to choose between cutting enrollment or cutting services.

On the other hand, legislation to smooth the way for students to move from two-year to o four-year schools has hit a snag. After the bill breezed through the House, concerns have surfaced in the Senate over proposed rules on transfers and degree requirements. For example, Shirley Willihnganze at the University of Louisville is quoted as anticipating "trouble with a number of accrediting agencies that require more hours than that for a degree."

Both stories come from Herald-Leader reporting.
