EMCC and Husson Sign Agreement to Facilitate Student Transfers
Feb 6, 2014
Eastern Maine Community College (EMCC) and Husson University have entered into an agreement that will create a smooth process for the transfer of credits from EMCC to Husson. The agreement provides students from EMCC with a side-by-side analysis of how their credits will transfer from the Associate degrees of Liberal Studies, Business Management, Small Business Development, and Hospitality and Tourism Management into the Husson University Bachelor degrees of Accounting, Business Administration, Business Administration with an Entrepreneurship concentration and Hospitality and Tourism Management.
“These new agreements between EMCC and the College of Business at Husson University will provide pathways for students to continue their education beyond the Associate degree level,” said Husson University’s College of Business Dean Marie Hansen. “Students will be able to plan their course selections, in accordance with this agreement, as early as their first year at EMCC. The result will be a more seamless credit transfer process for EMCC Associate degree graduates interested in completing a Bachelor’s degree with Husson University.”
Hansen continued: “We are pleased to be working closely with EMCC to facilitate opportunities for students to pursue further education.”
“EMCC and Husson University have always had a great relationship when it comes to advancing higher education offerings in Maine, and this new articulation agreement is yet another example of that. The partnership between our institutions will provide excellent academic opportunities for students by enabling them to continue their studies and earn a Bachelor’s Degree right here in Bangor,” said EMCC President Lawrence Barrett, Ed.D.
