An innovative "3+1' program intended to encourage out-of-state students at select community colleges to earn an Indiana University bachelor of general studies degree challenges the assumptions underlying most articulation agreements. 
 
Thomas R. Bailey, director of the Community College Research Center at Columbia University's Teachers College, added that while IU's program struck him as unique, 3+1 articulation agreements are not unheard of in occupational fields, such as nursing, that tend to require more than two years to complete after prerequisites are factored in. And they're consistent with increasing trends within the community college world to offer four-year degrees, he said.
