The Transfer Pathways Agreement between the two schools maximizes the credits a student earns at WCCCD when transferring to WSU to finish their bachelor’s degree.
“This new agreement strengthens the collaboration that already exists between our two institutions and elevates it to a new level,” Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson said in a news release. “But, more importantly, it benefits students in Detroit and Wayne County and contributes to the region and state’s competitiveness.”
The official agreement will be signed at a ceremony in Detroit on Thursday.
WCCCD students who have completed at least 60 credit hours with a 2.5 GPA or higher and received an associate degree will be guaranteed admission to Wayne State. They’ll also be eligible for select merit scholarship funds valued at up to $6,000 a year.
“This partnership will help more students forge career pathways to high-wage and in-demand job opportunities that will allow them to grow in place, support themselves and their families, and help their communities grow,” WCCCD Chancellor Curtis L. Ivery said in a statement.
The new agreement takes effect later this fall.
