Metropolitan Community College and Missouri State University announced the signing of a new articulation agreement. The arrangement between MCC and the public university system located in Springfield, Missouri is designed to provide a smooth transition for students who will transfer from MCC to Missouri State. The new transfer agreements focus on the areas of Art, Communication Studies, Electronic Arts (audio, interactive and video studies), Print and Broadcast Journalism, Mass Media, Modern Language (Spanish/French/German) and Music.
Today MCC Chancellor Mark James and the Missouri State President Clifton M Smart III officially signed the paperwork that will streamline the transfer process and make it simple for students to continue their higher education journey without losing credits or duplicating coursework.
“The team at MCC is passionate about serving students and we do so by providing access to learning opportunities. Currently, Metropolitan Community College has more than 400 transfer agreements in place to ensure students can seamlessly transfer to four-year higher education institutions. It is important that we continue to cultivate relationships with post-secondary institutions so we can provide access and encourage students to continue their education. This most recent agreement with Missouri State is helping to further this goal and afford endless opportunities for our students,” said Chancellor Mark James.
The President of Missouri State, Clifton M Smart III, said he was delighted to sign an agreement that encourages students to achieve higher-education goals. “We work to be a transfer friendly school. We want students to know that we welcome and invite students to fulfill their academic aspirations.”
Several administrators from Missouri State were able to tour the Health Science Institute located on the MCC-Penn Valley campus. They were impressed with the hands-on training the students receive from the state-of-the-art equipment.
