Corning Community College (CCC) recently formalized three additional articulation agreements with area colleges and universities, providing additional options for students seeking four-year degrees. These agreements ensure that students have a smooth transition from CCC to baccalaureate institutions.
The most recent agreements, with SUNY Canton, SUNY Delhi, and a second program with Penn College of Technology provide additional opportunities for students to maximize career options. The agreements with SUNY Canton and SUNY Delhi are both online opportunities, with coursework leading to a nursing degree at SUNY Canton and criminal justice degree at SUNY Delhi. For CCC students who wish to pursue one of the bachelor’s degree covered by the articulation agreement with Penn College of Technology, the Pennsylvania college will offer in-state tuition to New York State students who transfer with an articulation agreement in place.
“Many of our students come to Corning with the expectation of transferring to a four-year college,” said Kimberly Perkins, director of academic outreach. “Articulation agreements pave the way for a smooth transition, ensuring that students don’t have to repeat courses, which adds time and expense to the process. These agreements position our students to earn a bachelor’s degree in four years.”
In addition to guaranteed placement at a SUNY college, CCC graduates can leverage articulation agreements that outline course expectations for specific bachelor’s degrees at 37 public and private New York State colleges and universities and seven out-of-state colleges and universities.
“The agreements cover a range of career options, including education, electrical engineering, computer science, and digital communications,” said Perkins. “The most recent agreement with Penn Tech, which results in a Bachelor of Science Technology Management degree, is a great passport to many employment opportunities, including advanced positions in their respective technical/professional areas, administrative services, first-line supervisors, industrial production and manufacturing, medical and health services, construction management, and hospitality management.”
