Hagerstown Community College and Wilson College Partner to Provide Students with Smooth Transition Between Institutions
The goal is to encourage more HCC graduates to pursue a bachelor’s degree after they complete their associate degree by making the transition as smooth and economical as possible, according to officials at both institutions.
“Partnerships like these allow students to complete their bachelor’s degrees in less time, saving them money while preparing them for the ever-changing 21st-century employment landscape,” said Wilson President Barbara K. Mistick. “Not only is a bachelor’s degree required for a growing number of jobs, but it is also the key to more earning power over the course of a career. At Wilson, we are committed to improving access to our programs for all students.”
“We are excited to enter this agreement with Wilson College,” said HCC President Jim Klauber. “It will give our graduates, especially those pursuing a master’s degree, more options and opportunities. I am always excited to open more doors of opportunity for our graduates.”
