Building Bridges Between Community Colleges and Business Schools
Across the country, more community colleges and business schools are signing articulation agreements
, guaranteeing admissions for transfer students who meet the requirements.
For example, Carroll Community College
(CCC), located in Westminster, Maryland, signed a transfer agreement with Johns Hopkins University’s Carey Business School in November of 2009. The agreement “assures that qualified community college students can enter Johns Hopkins without the loss of credit and work on a four-year degree while entering with junior status.” With this agreement, community college students at Carroll have a specific outline regarding which courses to take and how they will transfer towards a B.S. Business.
In addition, through this agreement, students of Carroll Community College
who intend to pursue a degree with the Carey Business School can access joint programs, resources, and advisors.
