KSU, EGCC partner for degree programs
STEUBENVILLE — Kent State and Eastern Gateway Community College have formed a strategic partnership that will create new access to courses and degrees for students beginning in 2019.
Leaders from both institutions met Wednesday at EGCC’s Steubenville campus to sign the agreement.
The first two conjoined educational pathways will link EGCC’s associate of arts degree to two Kent State programs: the bachelor of science in information technology degree and bachelor of technical and applied studies degree. Students will also be able to complete the technical and applied studies degree with a concentration in insurance studies.
Additional pathways will be determined in the future, based on student interest in various study areas.
In addition to course offerings, Kent State will house a physical advising center at EGCC’s Steubenville campus, which will serve to educate students on Kent State programs and provide guidance for students looking to transfer after completing their associate degree programs at EGCC.
The new partnership will eliminate the guesswork for students who are interested in transferring from EGCC to Kent State to complete their four-year degrees. They will have a pathway map of courses leading their studies from EGCC to Kent State and to achieving a bachelor’s degree.
