The Credit Transfer Guidelines for Student Transfer and Articulation Among MO Colleges and Universities outlines the makeup and duties of COTA. COTA developed, and Missouri public and independent signatories implemented, this policy is order to ensure that high school and college students complete their chosen degree programs in the shortest time possible when a student moves from one institution to another. The policy also describes the appeal process that may be initiated by the student or the institution.
