Clarkson College Signs Articulation Agreement with Metropolitan Community College

Clarkson College and Metropolitan Community College (MCC) recently signed an articulation agreement that allows MCC students earning an associate degree to transfer their existing credit to Clarkson College and enroll in one of the institution’s health care program options.

“Both Metropolitan Community College and Clarkson College are committed to expanding educational opportunities for students,” says Dr. Gary Pack, Interim President of Clarkson College. “This new relationship ensures a smooth transition for students who wish to enter the health care field and prepare to provide compassionate, high quality care.”  

Students who have received an associate degree at MCC are required to have maintained a 2.5 grade point average to be eligible to transfer courses. They must also have maintained a “C” average in courses that are to be transferred. Individuals who meet the admissions criteria are automatically accepted into online program options at Clarkson College, and those applying to on-campus program options receive preference through additional points on their application. Once accepted at Clarkson College, students have the opportunity to take advantage of online and on-campus services including tutoring, mentoring, supplemental instruction, writing labs and career services.

Students can apply their college credit to one of the numerous health care degree options, including two new options in Community Health, Pre-Health Professional (Pre-Med, Pre-Dentistry, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Occupational Therapy and Pre-Pharmacy) as well as Psychology, at Clarkson College. The institution also offers additional certificate, associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree options in Nursing (BSN, RN to BSN and MSN), Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiography and Medical Imaging, Community Health, Education and Leadership, Healthcare Business, and Health Information Management.
