A new agreement recently signed by the presidents of Schoolcraft College and Wayne State University will allow students to get a maximum value for their completed coursework while pursuing an associate degree and then bachelor’s degree at these partner institutions. This new agreement will provide a seamless transfer experience while increasing student retention and degree completion at both schools.
Dr. Conway A. Jeffress, president of Schoolcraft College, and Dr. M. Roy Wilson, president of Wayne State University, were joined by administrators, staff and members of the Board of Trustees to celebrate the Reverse Transfer Agreement. The agreement will allow for students who transfer to a Wayne State University program (at any WSU campus including the main campus in Detroit or the SCtoU facility at Schoolcraft College) before completing their associate degree requirements at Schoolcraft the opportunity to use WSU credits to complete an associate degree while continuing to pursue a bachelor’s or higher degree.
“Throughout the past decade WSU has consistently been one of the top five colleges to which Schoolcraft students choose to transfer and continue their education,” said Dr. Jeffress.
“Today is just one of many in a long list of acknowledgements of the very successful partnership Schoolcraft and WSU have had for many years, all of which have been for the benefit of students in the region,” said Dr. Wilson.
Schoolcraft College and WSU are also entering a whole new era of efficiency and quality education opportunities for students with the Schoolcraft to U partnership. “As of this week there are nearly 100 students who have enrolled in the WSU Schoolcraft to U programs being offered at Schoolcraft,” Dr. Jeffress shared with the audience.
Beginning Fall of 2014 WSU will be offering the following programs through the Schoolcraft to U Partnership: Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting or Management; Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Computer Technology, Electric Transportation Technology, Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology, Electromechanical Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology; and Masters in Business Administration.
