ATHENS, Ohio (Sept. 4, 2003) -- On Thursday, Sept. 4, Columbus State Community College President Val Moeller and Ohio University President Robert Glidden signed an articulation agreement allowing a seamless transfer of Columbus State students to Ohio University.
This commitment to inter-institutional cooperation will further expand higher education access and student success by easing the transfer process and promoting closer coordination of academic courses, programs and degrees offered by both institutions.
Moeller said, "This is a great day for both Columbus State Community College and Ohio University. More importantly, it is a great day for our students. This agreement will make it easier for the people of Central Ohio to complete their four-year degrees at one of the finest public universities in the Midwest."
"This new partnership holds significant potential for both Ohio University and for Columbus State," Ohio University Assistant to the President Erek Perry said. "It builds upon the mutual interests of both institutions, and encourages students to continue their education to the bachelors and graduate levels. With the agreement in place, Ohio University and Columbus State are in a position to work collaboratively to develop programs of study to best fit the needs of students."
The agreement will: guarantee admission for all Columbus State students who have earned an Associate of Arts (AA)/Associate of Science (AS) degree and meet the transfer admission requirements; provide Columbus State students the ability to complete the AA/AS degree in absentia using Ohio University course credit; admit, with full junior standing to Ohio University, any Columbus State AA/AS degree holder with a minimum of 90 quarter hours or equivalent collegiate-level work; and allow Columbus State AA/AS degree holders who matriculate to Ohio University, to have completed Ohio University's general education requirements that are approved by Ohio University's Curriculum Council and are common to both institutions.
