Eleven program articulations were signed, each laying out the pathway of courses and academic credits in the path from associate of science (LPTC) to bachelor's in business (WSC) degrees.
Wayne State College and Little Priest Tribal College in Winnebago signed new articulation agreements Monday, March 4, in the WSC president’s office on the Wayne State campus. LPTC president Maunka Morgan and WSC president Dr. Marysz Rames signed new transfer agreements that allow LPTC students to seamlessly transfer associate degrees in business to earn bachelor’s degrees in business at Wayne State College.
Eleven program articulations were signed, each laying out the pathway of courses and academic credits from the start of the LPTC program all the way through to the completion of the WSC bachelor’s degree. These pathways will serve students and the LPTC and WSC advisors working with the individual students on their plans of study.
Pathways from associate of science to bachelor’s in business degrees include concentrations in accounting, agribusiness, economics, finance, human resource management, international business, management, marketing, office administration, public accounting, and professional studies.
“These types of collaborations are important to the success of our students and institutions,” said Morgan. “By updating our articulation agreements between Little Priest Tribal College and Wayne State College, we have ensured that an optimal alignment and amount of Little Priest Tribal College business degree credits are transferred into Wayne State College’s related business degree programs. Ultimately, this means a greater level of student success and empowerment at our collective institutions.”
“Wayne State is proud to work with Little Priest Tribal College to provide a high quality, accessible, and affordable pathway to a four-year degree,” said Rames. “We are honored with the trust Little Priest has placed in Wayne State and confident that our partnership will ensure that Little Priest students have the best options for following their passion into important roles in the workforce.”
Wayne State College, a leading, public four-year college in Northeast Nebraska, is a proud member of the Nebraska State College System.
