Administrators at Genesee Community College and Keuka College in Penn Yan, NY re-signed an articulation agreement expanding the opportunity of effectively transferring associate’s degree credits earned at Genesee toward a bachelor’s degree from Keuka College. With this updated agreement, courses and program requirements are defined so that students can make a smooth transition to their desired baccalaureate program at Keuka College.
The articulation agreement enables students to take advantage of unique opportunities and benefits such as knowing the recommended course selections that secure acceptance into a four-year program at Keuka. Upon successful completion of the outlined requirements in the agreement, students will be guaranteed admission to Keuka in their desired major.
Genesee Community College offers several programs that align well with many of Keuka’s degree programs. In particular, Genesee’s Deaf Studies Certificate program works as a building block into Keuka’s unique American Sign Language to English Interpretation program. Other popular transfer programs include Education, Social work and Criminal Justice.
“Re-visiting this agreement allows us to have the most up-to-date course information for our students,” Patrick Walter, Career and Transfer Coordinator at Genesee said. “The purpose of this agreement is to allow students to pre-plan their college careers so they can avoid taking unneeded credits and spending money on courses that won’t transfer.”
Through an articulation agreement, students typically save thousands of dollars on their first two years of tuition, which at Genesee costs $140 per credit for New York state residents. In addition, if they choose to live at home they can also save on room and board. This savings allows students to concentrate more on a transfer school that fits their education needs and career goals, rather than how much that school will cost them.
Genesee Community College has transfer agreements with over 45 different institutions. For further information, please contact Patrick Walter at 585-343-0055 ext. 6430 or go to: http://www.genesee.edu/CTC .
