In the eyes of a future student in the university community, the future is bright and Community College is a springboard to four-year school. Unfortunately, this path is not as easy to travel as we hope. Between the challenges of creating conditions and paying for education, many students take longer than expected to transfer, if they do. Even then, the average transfer student loses more than 40% of their credit, which can reset them even more. CCC has entered into the following articulation agreements with publicly traded universities/universities. These agreements define curricula that meet the needs of higher education institutions or the host university. For more information on the needs of courses and programs, see the university catalogue or the orientation team. Community University students who obtain an associate degree can be transferred to related licensing programs at many Florida colleges. Transfer agreements also exist between many institutions in the University of Florida system and private or independent schools. Some bachelor`s programs offer partnerships with various public and private universities for study that ends on campus or online. The part of an articulation chord that is probably most useful to you is a program-to-program diagram. It is a clear and concise picture that shows exactly how two university programs are coordinated, one in a community school and the other in a four-year institution.
For example, it shows how an English degree in English corresponds to a bachelor`s degree in English from a four-year school. Students who begin their university trip at one of Massachusetts` 15 colleges can easily move to state university or the University of Massachusetts at a reduced cost. Admission and transfer of funds are guaranteed if students obtain an associate degree in less than 2 and a half years, while maintaining full-time continuing registration and a minimum MPA of 3.0. Other benefits of the program include tuition credits, tuition freezes and tuition fees, as well as a 10% reduction per semester.
