PURPOSE

Building a partnership to aid the transfer of students from Laramie County Community College to Four-Year Universities.

  • Increase Transfer Rates

  • Increase Completion Rates for A.S. and A.A. degrees

DESCRIPTION

This agreement is designed to ensure articulated pathways for LCCC students and give students a four year academic pathway. The agreement guarantees admission, completion of general education requirements, access to financial aid, scholarships, and student services for transferring students. The pathway gives a student a roadmap to their specific field of choice, starting with the broader associate degree at LCCC. A student who can see their pathway is more engaged and more likely to complete their degree.
