Batavia, New York – Administrators at Genesee Community College and Medaille College in Buffalo, NY have created an articulation agreement expanding the opportunity for international students to transfer Associate degree credits earned at GCC toward a Bachelor’s degree from Medaille College. With this updated agreement, courses and program requirements are defined so that international students can make a smooth transition to their desired baccalaureate program at Medaille.
Currently, over 100 international students from 27 countries are pursuing their academic goals at GCC. The contributions made by these students, both socially and academically, have significantly enriched the diversity and culture of GCC. This articulation agreement enables international 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 Medaille. Upon successful completion of the outlined requirements in the agreement, students will be guaranteed admission to Medaille in their desired major.
Genesee Community College offers several programs that align well with many of Medaille’s degree programs. The ideal pathway from GCC to Medaille for internationals students is GCC’s Liberal Arts and Science: General Studies (A.S.) program. In addition, Accounting, Business Administration, Communications, Criminal Justice and Sport Management are other program-specific options for international students.
“After graduation, many of our international students choose to continue their education here in the United States,” Patrick Walter, Transfer Coordinator at GCC said. “This agreement will aid so many of our students from around the globe in achieving their dreams of higher education.”
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/Transfer.
