New partnership Central Community College and Wayne State College
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Central Community College and Wayne State College have inked a deal that provides for more opportunities for current CCC students as well as alumni.
The deal will help students who complete an applied science degree at CCC to transfer up to 80 credit hours to Wayne State College.
Those 80 credits can then go towards the 120 credits needed to complete a bachelors’ degree in technology.
CCC and Wayne State will also work together on student recruitment and advising, as well as helping students with the transfer process.
The schools hope is that they will be able to retain the students. Officials with both schools say the partnership comes from the respect they have for both programs.
“When you think about those types of programs that feed a lot of out manufacturing kinds of majors in the state it makes sense to partner and recognize what they do in their curriculum,” Maryez Rames, president of Wayne State College said.
The fields that will benefit from this will range from electrical to welding to even para-medicine.
