Campus QI Program

The Title V Project is funded through the Department of Education (www.calstatelaedu/univ/titlev )

Program development has been under the direction of the Project Director – Dr. Alfredo Gonzalez, Activity Director – Evelyn Calvillo, Administrative Assistant – Julissa Gutierrez, and ITS. This project is administered through the Admissions and University Registrar’s office, under the guidance of Joan Woosley and the staff.

Program Overview Highlights:

With this grant, the Title V Project paves the way for Cal State L.A. to implement an Electronic Data Interface System (EDI), allowing community college transfer students to authorize electronic transmission of their transcripts. This vehicle is a faster and more efficient form of delivery for all those involved.

Currently, the Project works with Pasadena City College (PCC) and East Los Angeles Community College (ELAC), with plans to involve all Los Angeles City Community Colleges. In the pilot program with ELAC, transfer students give permission for their transcripts to be sent online to Cal State L.A. The receipt of this data allows for quick access to the transcripts by campus evaluators; hence, a more efficient evaluation process at interface time with the in-coming students.

The goal is to transmit the transcripts in a manner that allows for automatic evaluation of transfer credits, by pairing the incoming classes and units with the corresponding Cal State LA course, without intervention by an Evaluator.

The rollout of EDI is close to what is called the production phase with preliminary rollout planned.
