Unity College and YCCC sign agreement for easy transfer
Unity College and York County Community College (YCCC) are pleased to announce a 2 PLUS 2 articulation agreement. A signing ceremony, representing the culmination of the agreement process, took place on April 28 at YCCC’s campus in Wells in the President’s office.
The intent of the agreement is to provide students who have completed an associate’s degree in Criminal Justice at YCCC the ability to transfer seamlessly to Unity College to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in conservation law enforcement. Students are guaranteed that they will enter Unity with Junior status, and every course they take at YCCC will transfer to Unity.
“Unity’s focus on sustainability science meshes well with YCCC’s Criminal Justice program,” said Unity Provost Michael Evans. “Conservation law enforcement officers are the front lines of environmental protection, and this articulation agreement will give students excellent opportunities to prepare themselves for this important career.”
Signing ceremony attendees were, of YCCC, Interim President Chris Hall, Vice President/Academic Dean Paula Gagnon, Director for Career and Transfer Services Jessica Gagne, criminal justice faculty Tracey Cornell, and Danielle Ebbrecht in the academic affairs department; and of Unity College, President Dr. Stephen Mulkey, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Michael Evans, Registrar/Dean of Institutional Research Holly Hein, and Associate Director of Media Relations Mark Tardif.
Through the framework of sustainability science, Unity College provides a liberal arts education that emphasizes the environment and natural resources.
