Leaders from Kellogg Community College and Grand Valley State University today signed an institutional articulation agreement that will provide smoother transitions for KCC students who want to continue their education at GVSU.
The agreement was signed May 5 at KCC’s Binda Performing Arts Center on campus in Battle Creek. The overarching agreement between the two institutions allows seamless transfer along multiple academic pathways at KCC leading to various GVSU degree programs.
KCC President Dr. Paul R. Watson II said the articulation agreement exemplifies the schools’ continued dedication to empowering students to reach their full potential.
“Kellogg Community College is pleased to enhance its longstanding collaboration with Grand Valley State University, offering students a smoother transition from KCC to GVSU,” Watson said. “This articulation agreement reflects our ongoing commitment to providing accessible, high-quality education to our students, providing more opportunities for them to pursue higher education seamlessly.”
GVSU is the second most popular destination for KCC students who transfer their credits to a four-year university. GVSU President Philomena V. Mantella said she is pleased to partner with KCC and help increase educational access for students.
“This is an important partnership as the agreement helps to ensure students who have an associate degree from KCC will not face any barriers at Grand Valley when it comes to transferring credits, receiving financial aid, duplicating coursework or any other resource a student needs,” Mantella said.
Students must also meet all other standard admission, curriculum and graduation requirements of KCC and GVSU.
