School leaders at Schenectady County Community College and Siena College on Wednesday signed a transfer agreement for 31 degree programs at Siena.
The agreement — similar to ones SCCC has recently signed with SUNY Cobleskill and the University at Albany — aims to simplify the credit-transfer process for students who start a degree program at SCCC and move to the four-year college to complete the degree.
By following the guidance of a specific degree program, students can spend two years at SCCC, earn their associate degree, and transfer to Siena with enough credits to come in as a junior. After two more years at Siena, the student can graduate with a bachelor’s degree.
The agreement includes a wide array of programs, from criminal justice and human services to math and science. SCCC’s humanities and social science program will transfer to individual Siena degrees like English, history, sociology and political science. The community college’s more general science programs will also transfer directly into more specialized degree programs at Siena.
