Manchester Community College President Susan Huard and Ali Rafieymehr, Dean of the University of New Hampshire Manchester, signed an Articulation Agreement to provide students with a clear pathway to a business degree and a career.
Under this agreement students have the option of dual admission into MCC's Liberal Arts or Management associate degree programs and UNH Manchester's Bachelor of Arts in Business program, guaranteeing acceptance into UNHM's program when program requirements are met.
President Huard explained that the agreement offers students "a seamless pathway to a bachelor degree by encouraging them to start at MCC, assured that, when they complete their program with us, they can move straight to UNH Manchester to complete their bachelor degree in business."
Dean Rafieymehr noted that MCC and UNH Manchester have a long history of collaboration. "MCC is a natural education partner for us. MCC shares our commitment to student academic and professional success." The agreement formally connects faculty and advisors at both institutions and will strengthen the academic experience for students. Students will save time and money during the transfer application process because the transfer application and fee are waived.
Students entering MCC will follow an academic plan designed to fulfill program requirements and earn the maximum number of transfer credits. When degree requirements are completed, students will be guaranteed enrollment and transfer credit into the Bachelor of Arts in Business program at UNH Manchester. The transfer admission application and application fee are waived by this agreement.
"We have many MCC students transferring to UNH Manchester and I know they will be happy to have a clear path to complete their B.A. in Business at UNH Manchester," said Miho Bean, Associate Director of Admissions at UNH Manchester.
