Abstract: Many students start their academic careers at community colleges. After a year or two, they transfer to a university to complete their undergraduate degrees. Students who make poor course selections at community colleges may find that some of their course credits do not transfer to the university programs of their choice. A decision support system was developed to help community college students (1) understand the structure of university undergraduate degree programs, and (2) identify community college courses that meet university requirements. The system is designed to be easy to use and attractive for the typical community college student. It was consiructed by a team of three undergraduate MIS students over the course of a single semester using a Windows-based hypermedia tool.
