一道本不卡免费高清Northwestern Connecticut Community College and Charter Oak State College have recently signed a Community College Tuition Match Scholarship Agreement in which Charter Oak State College will provide the last two years of a bachelor’s degree to graduates of associate degree programs at NCCC, at the Connecticut Community Colleges tuition and fee rates in effect for that year. This agreement goes into effect in Fall 2018 semester.

Interested NCCC students should contact Charter Oak State College Admissions at admissions@grimaldieassociati.com.

  • Attain 2.3 or higher Grade Point Average (GPA)
  • Complete the associate degree
  • Matriculate at Charter Oak State College within 6 months of completing Associate’s degree

The tuition scholarship is good for 5 years. In order to maintain the scholarship, the student must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 Charter Oak credits in the fall and spring semesters. This would allow the student to graduate in five years, if attending part time. Students can take more courses at the reduced rate and thus graduate earlier, take courses in the summer, or take additional courses, as applicable, at NCCC as long as they adhere to the requirements stated above.

Students will have to meet Charter Oak State College’s degree requirements for the bachelor’s degree.

Dr. Dave Ferreira, Dean of Academic & Student Affairs at NCCC asserted, “This is an exciting opportunity that gives the students who graduate from Northwestern Connecticut Community College an affordable choice to a quality bachelor’s degree in areas such as Cyber Security, Health Care Administration, and Business Administration.” He continued, “Students will have the ability to easily transition from an associate’s degree to a bachelor’s degree program at Charter Oak State College while paying the community college tuition and fee rate in effect for that year. Furthermore, the online course delivery format at Charter Oak State College is a good option for graduates who have busy schedules or cannot commute to the nearest university.”

Dr. Shirley M. Adams, Provost at Charter Oak State College, agrees. She stated, “We have had an articulation agreement with NCCC for years allowing their students easy transfer to Charter Oak State College. This agreement expands that option, making it more affordable. It provides students with an incentive to do well at and to complete their associate’s degree at NCCC and then to pursue their bachelor’s degree without leaving home.”
