Earlier today, Curry College and Cape Cod Community College leaders officially signed a transfer agreement that provides CCCC graduates the opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degree through Curry College’s Division of Continuing Education and Graduate Studies.
Curry College Provost Dr. David Szczerbacki, and Anne Berriault, Director of Curry’s Plymouth Campus, joined with Cape Cod Community College President Dr. John Cox and Dr. Susan Miller, Vice President, Academic & Student Affairs to finalize the agreement.
Under the agreement, Curry College will accept all of the CCCC associate degree credits. Students may potentially transfer additional credits up to a maximum of 90, allowing them to study at CCCC for up to three years if they choose.
“At Curry College, we mentor and empower our students to achieve their ambitions. In that spirit, we welcome Cape Cod Community College students and will allow them flexibility to diversify their academic portfolio and transfer into a new academic program without sacrificing credits,” said Dr. Szczerbacki.
Advisors from Curry College will also provide academic advising services to prospective CCCC students to provide a seamless transition into their desired major, and keep them on track for completing their Bachelor’s degree.
“We are extremely excited about the opportunities awaiting our students at Curry College,” stated John Cox, President of Cape Cod Community College. Our students will be able to advance their academic aspirations at an outstanding institution, and do so at a very affordable rate through this partnership. Curry College’s willingness to accept up to 90 credits – 30 more than a typical Associate Degree – from courses taken here at Cape Cod Community College, is a very strong endorsement of the quality of the education our students receive from our highly regarded faculty, something of which we are understandably very proud,” concluded President Cox.
CCCC students will also be eligible to receive Curry’s Education Partner Pricing, which offers graduates a reduced per-credit tuition rate. Since 2012, Curry College and Cape Cod Community College have collaborated on several initiatives to better serve and meet the needs of students.
