The University of Wisconsin-Superior and Lake Superior College in Duluth, Minn., are proud to announce that they have partnered for a new articulation agreement in Biology.
Lake Superior College (LSC) students can make a seamless transition into UW-Superior by transferring the credits they earned at LSC in Associate of Arts Degree to UW-Superior for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology.
In the interest of fostering cooperation between institutions, and to better serve the transfer of students from Lake Superior College to the UW-Superior, the faculty and administration of both institutions have established this articulation agreement.
This new arrangement is the fourth between the two schools. The other agreements that are already in place are in Accounting, Social Work and Paralegal Studies.
Shane Deadrick, transfer coordinator at UW-Superior, is excited to see this agreement already in place with LSC. “Transferring is much easier for the students because they know how their credits will transfer long before they apply and eventually graduate.”
“Our new articulation agreement with UW-Superior helps Lake Superior College students achieve their academic goals,” said Hanna Erpestad, Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Lake Superior College. “Students can earn an Associate of Arts degree with us and then easily transfer to UW-Superior to complete their upper-level course work required for a bachelor’s degree in biology. We appreciate that the biology faculty at both institutions collaborated closely to make this agreement happen.”
Elizabeth Blue, interim Dean of Faculties and Graduate Studies at UW-Superior says these partnerships are an advising aid as well. “Articulation agreements allow departments to support potential transfer students in thinking about a particular major and school when deciding where to go next to attend college.”
Professor Blue added that these educational relationships pay off down the road as well. “These arrangements give students and faculty an opportunity to network with personnel of the other schools, develop new working relationships and cement partnerships that can become long-standing and valuable. We look forward to adding more articulation agreements in the near future.”
