Agreement helps students earn online degrees
DEARBORN---A new articulation agreement between Jackson Community College (JCC) and UM-Dearborn will allow JCC students to complete an online bachelor's degree in general studies at UM-Dearborn and receive the same benefits as traditional students.
"UM-Dearborn and Jackson Community College are both institutions that are based on collaboration and partnerships," said Chancellor Daniel Little at the signing ceremony last month. "Half of the students who attend UM-Dearborn are non-traditional students, so articulation agreements like this one are very, very important to us."
Whether they are enrolled in online or traditional campus courses, the agreement allows JCC students who earn an associate of arts, science, applied science, or general studies degree to transfer up to a maximum of 62 credits toward the bachelor of general studies degree at UM-Dearborn.
"This agreement is about serving our students and helping them be as successful as they can," according to Daniel J. Phelan, president of Jackson Community College.
Jackson Community College, located in Jackson, Mich., has its main campus in Summit Township, with centers in downtown Jackson, and in Adrian and Hillsdale.
