Central Maine Community College (CMCC) and Husson University have approved a memorandum of understanding that will facilitate the transfer of credits between the two schools and provide CMCC students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree with a smooth transition from CMCC to Husson.
The agreement outlines admission and program requirements. It also specifies which CMCC courses can be used to meet general elective and major requirements at Husson. To assist in the advising process, individual course equivalencies listed by program are included in the agreement.
In describing the scope of the agreement, Husson University’s College of Business Dean Marie Hansen said, “Students who successfully complete approved coursework at CMMC in accounting, business administration, computer information systems, criminal justice, hospitality and tourism management, and sport management can now seamlessly transfer those credits to Husson University.
“This identifies clear pathways for students interested in continuing their education beyond the associate’s degree level,” Hansen continued. “We are pleased to provide CMCC students with local opportunities to further their education through the pursuit of their bachelor’s degrees.”
“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Husson University,” added Liz Oken, director of placement and transfer services at CMCC. “Current and potential CMCC students will be encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity and to connect with transfer services early in their career’s here for advising and guidance through this process.”
