Saint Rose, Columbia-Greene Community College Partner to Expand Opportunities to Earn Degrees in Art
ALBANY (February 11, 2016) — A new transfer agreement between The College of Saint Rose and Columbia-Greene Community College in Hudson will expand opportunities for Capital Region students who want to turn a two-year art degree into a full bachelor’s degree.
The new “articulation agreement” enables students who earn an associate degree in fine arts at Columbia-Greene to transfer seamlessly to the bachelor of science in studio art program at Saint Rose. The agreements spell out the specific courses that students should complete at Columbia-Greene and their equivalents at Saint Rose. Graduates of the Columbia-Greene fine arts program will enter Saint Rose with junior status.
To help transfer students financially, Saint Rose offers guaranteed two-year undergraduate academic scholarships to those who have achieved superior grade-point averages for all previous college work. Scholarships range up to $14,500 per year. Transfer students who are current members of Phi Theta Kappa national honor society are eligible for an additional $1,000 each year.
Articulation agreements enable students to plan and sequence their course work at a two-year college in such a way that ensures the smooth transition into upper-level course work without loss of credit, enabling students to reach their goal of a four-year degree.
Saint Rose now has more than 100 articulation agreements with community colleges and other institutions in the Capital Region, Hudson and Mohawk valleys and beyond in such fields as education, business, computer science, music, art and psychology. All are designed to help provide a clear path for students seeking to continue their education.
Saint Rose and Columbia-Greene continue to explore opportunities for agreements between additional programs of study.
