Husson and YCCC sign credit transfer agreement

Husson University and York County Community College are updating an agreement that creates a smooth process for the transfer of credits from YCCC to Husson. A signing ceremony, representing the culmination of the agreement process, took place April 3 at YCCC’s campus in Wells.

The agreement provides students from YCCC with a side-by-side analysis of how their credits will transfer from York County Community College associate’s degrees to Husson University programs in accounting, business administration, software development, criminal justice, and hospitality and tourism management.

“YCCC and the College of Business at Husson University have a long history of successfully working together to provide educational opportunities to students interested in earning bachelor’s degrees after they complete their associate’s degree studies,” said Marie Hansen, Husson University’s College of Business dean. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with York County Community College as we implement credit transfer offerings in more programs between our two institutions of higher learning.”

“Husson has been and continues to be a valued partner for YCCC,” said Paula Gagnon, YCCC vice president and academic dean. “Our students not only receive full value for their YCCC associate degree when they transfer, they also find faculty and staff at Husson with a similar focus on student success. Our YCCC students feel at home when they transfer to Husson. There couldn’t be a better four-year partner for us.”

In addition to the credit transfer agreements, Husson University and YCCC have created a unique partnership that allows community college students to begin their bachelor’s degree studies at Husson University while continuing to be enrolled at YCCC’s Wells campus.

The dual enrollment option provides YCCC students with access to all of the services available at the Wells campus as they complete courses taught by faculty members from both institutions.
