Metropolitan Community College (MCC) students can now enjoy a seamless pathway to earn Missouri State University degrees.
Missouri State President Clif Smart and MCC Chancellor Dr. Kimberly Beatty met at MCC Nov. 1 to sign the agreement.
Under this agreement, the two institutions will work together to develop transfer plans for MCC students who want to earn a bachelor’s degree at Missouri State – either online or at the Springfield campus.
Students who complete an associate degree at MCC will be guaranteed admission at Missouri State.
“Missouri State and MCC are both committed to providing accessible and affordable higher education opportunities to more students,” Beatty said. “This partnership helps our two colleges reach that important goal by creating a clear, seamless, lower-cost avenue to a four-year degree.”
