UPB signs articulation pact with NY community college

Pitt's Bradford campus and Jamestown (New York) Community College have signed a transfer articulation agreement.

JCC students with associate degrees will be guaranteed acceptance at Bradford with junior standing and can complete a bachelor's degree with four semesters of coursework. The agreement has specific admissions, enrollment and graduation requirements and is open to JCC students with associate degrees in business management, media arts, computer science, criminal justice, human services, nursing, social sciences and other areas currently under development.

"Pitt-Bradford has always received excellent students from JCC," said Carol A. Baker, vice president and dean of academic affairs at Bradford.

She added, "This agreement will make the transition easier for JCC students who want to complete their baccalaureate degrees at Pitt-Bradford."

Gary F. Porter, JCC's dean of academic affairs, said, "JCC continually negotiates articulation agreements with four-year institutions to facilitate the effective transfer of credits for our graduates, and we were thrilled to work with Pitt-Bradford. The agreements between the two institutions reflect the importance of high academic standards and quality degree programs."
