Enterprise, AL – Enterprise State Community College (ESCC) and Andrew College (AC) held a historic articulation agreement signing on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 on the beautiful ESCC campus.
The goal of the collaboration is to provide Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates of select ESCC programs with an opportunity to enroll at Andrew College and earn their bachelor’s degree. ESCC graduates in business administration, accounting, and management and supervision, will have the opportunity to transfer to Andrew College to earn a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Business Administration.
The articulation agreement becomes effective immediately and will provide transfer opportunities for students who want to enroll at Andrew College during the fall 2018 semester.
Enterprise State Community College students completing the degree programs, and who meet the appropriate admissions requirements to attend Andrew College, will be ensured that all courses in the agreement earned at ESCC will transfer. A minimum grade of “C” or above in certain core courses and any other courses designed by specific majors will be required in accordance with standard program requirements.
Instrumental in establishing this partnership is Jennifer Nelson, ESCC Business & Computer Science Division Chair. “We’re grateful to the faculty and staff of Andrew College for their desire to partner with ESCC on this articulation agreement and open new doors of opportunity for our students,” she said. “The landscape of education is constantly changing and it’s necessary to provide an innovative path that supports the continued educational growth of our students. Through this agreement, an advanced degree is more accessible for our students.”
Andrew College President Linda R. Buchanan expressed her gratitude to ESCC for facilitating this agreement and said, “We greatly value this partnership with such a fine institution and look forward to welcoming Enterprise’s students into our Bachelor of Business Administration degree program.”
ESCC President Matt Rodgers expressed a similar appreciation for the agreement. “Our partnership with Andrew College aligns with our mission to continually create opportunities for our community. We look forward to developing this relationship for the benefit of our programs and students,” he said.
