We went through this in the Arizona state system in the 80s. It was 
referred to a articulation. There were six common course elements: 
title, description, credit hours, prerequisites, course number, and 
something else, but can't recall. Then in each department/curriculum 
area, an index of comparable equivalent subjects were published. So 
if someone successfully completed a subject in one uni or college, 
they were considered to have met that requirement. Transcripts of 
grades were easily available and exchanged between the institutions.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
