Passport Block


The Passport Block listed here is for general information only.
Students must see the institution's website for access to its official block.

 

The Interstate Passport enables successful transfer of a block of lower-level general education learning to other institutions participating in the Interstate Passport Network. Students who complete their Passport at Laramie County Community College will not be required to repeat or take additional course work to meet lower division general education requirements in the Passport’s nine areas when they transfer to any other Passport institution. Laramie County Community College began transcripting the Interstate Passport following the Fall 2016 semester.

Beginning in the summer of 2019, all courses that would continue as general education had to re-apply for general education status to ensure that each course was meeting the competnecies and outcomes through the passport.  Faculty had to describe how their course competencies aligned with the general education competencies oulined in our new procedure  and what learning activities would support that learning.

Additionally, in the fall of 2018, we also adopted a general education philosophy that would ensure that all approved general education courses would allow students to devlop the 4 essential practices that all employers and transfer institutions are looking for:

1.    Practices of Exploration, Research, and Problem Solving

2.    Practices of Creativity and Innovation

3.    Practices of Empathy and Integrity   

4.    Practices of Communication and Collaboration

All newly approved general education courses must demonstrate how students are practicing the above skills.  Attached are examples of documents that faculty used to document this work, but we have since integrated these processes to our curriculum management system.
