GU adds more options for transfer studentsby Sarah Thomack
Greenville University has added more options for transfer students, by signing articulation agreements with Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois, South Suburban College in South Holland, Illinois, and Harper College in Palatine, Illinois.
The Parkland College agreement covers a variety of majors including agribusiness (AS to BS; online and traditional), business management (AAS/AA, AA to BS; online and traditional), criminal justice (AAS/AA, AA to BS; online and traditional), digital media (AA to BS; traditional), organizational leadership (AA to BA; online), and psychology (AA to BS; online and traditional, AA to BA; traditional).
The agreement with South Suburban College includes business management (AA to BS, AAS to BS; online or on campus 2+2), criminal justice (AAS to BS, AAS/AA to BS; online or on campus 2+2) and organizational leadership (AAS/business to BS, AA to BS; online).
GU’s agreement with Harper College includes criminal justice (AA to BS; online or on campus 2+2) and organizational leadership (AAS business administration [management] to BS; online).
GU has over 80 agreements with 14 regional colleges covering a variety of majors including accounting, agribusiness, engineering, exercise science, marketing, early childhood education, and many more.
One of the problems transfer students often run into, is not all the credits they complete toward their associate degree count toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution.
These articulation agreements mean a student can start the coursework toward their degree at any of the institutions listed above, and easily transfer associate degree credits to Greenville University, complete a four-year degree, and graduate from GU.
“Courses have been outlined and preapproved for transfer, making every credit “count” in their academic journey,” says Deb Miller, GU articulations coordinator. “With our articulated online majors, distance no longer becomes an issue in obtaining a degree from Greenville University. Students are able to stay in their community and still gain needed experience and knowledge.”
