Greenwood Village, Colo (PRWEB) May 05, 2015
Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is excited to announce it has signed a statewide Memorandum of Understanding with all 16 colleges within the Wisconsin Technical College System. This agreement will allow CSU-Global the opportunity to serve more students in the state of Wisconsin by offering a seamless transfer opportunity. Students graduating from any of the colleges of the Wisconsin Technical College System will now have a guaranteed pathway to transfer at the junior level into any online bachelor’s degree at CSU-Global.
“The Wisconsin Technical College System is proud to enter into this agreement with Colorado State University-Global Campus as it provides an excellent opportunity for our graduates to seamlessly continue their education after receiving their associate’s degree,” explains Waukesha County Technical College’s Vice President of Learning, Denine Rood.
CSU-Global Campus accepts up to 90 credits in transfer, including up to 64 semester hours from junior, community, or career colleges, towards its bachelor’s degree programs. Students who have completed their associate’s degree from a regionally accredited community college are guaranteed admission.
Through this agreement, CSU-Global will establish program specific articulation agreements with each of the schools in the Wisconsin system. These articulations provide a clear transfer pathway for students who have career and education aspirations beyond the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Applied Science, and Associate of General Studies degrees they have earned.
Additionally, graduates of any of the Wisconsin Technical College System colleges will be eligible for CSU-Global’s Affiliate 2-Year Scholarship through this agreement. This scholarship is awarded to any student from a two-year affiliate school who enrolls at CSU-Global within one year of graduating from their associate’s degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher. These students receive a 10% tuition discount scholarship, which is locked for the duration of their bachelor’s degree program through CSU-Global’s Tuition Guarantee.
“This relationship recognizes the commitment CSU-Global and the colleges within the Wisconsin Technical College System have to providing students with greater educational opportunities,” says Colorado State University-Global Campus Provost and Vice President, Dr. Jon Bellum. “As an online state university dedicated to student support, this MOU helps us become an active educational partner with not only the institutions within the Wisconsin Technical College System, but also with each of their alumni who are looking to take their education to the next level by earning their bachelor’s degree.”
Through its affiliate college program, CSU-Global works with over 80 two-year colleges across the country to provide higher education opportunities to non-traditional learners. Community colleges can email CCOutreach(at)CSUGlobal(dot)edu to learn more about setting up affiliation agreements with CSU-Global.
