Reverse articulation agreement enables students to earn degrees

Ada — East Central University students who have transferred in from Murray State College, Eastern Oklahoma State College and Seminole State College have the opportunity to earn their associate’s degrees through a reverse articulation agreement with those three partner institutions by taking classes at ECU.

In order for the ECU students to achieve those associates' degrees, they must have completed at least 50 hours at those three colleges.

“East Central University is actively engaged in assisting students who transferred to ECU without an associate of arts or associate of science degree who have taken or could take courses at ECU that would meet the requirements for these degrees to transfer back to Murray State College, Eastern Oklahoma State College and Seminole State College,” said Dr. Duane C. Anderson, provost and vice president for academic affairs at ECU.

 Transcripts of ECU students are in the process of being identified in order for the students to complete their degrees, according to Claudia Hisle, director of the ECU Academic Advising Center.

“We will work with advisors from those colleges to determine what courses need to be completed here to transfer back there toward their associate’s degree,” said Hisle.

According to Anderson, it’s a great opportunity to complete a two-year degree.

“Sometimes students find themselves in life circumstances that cause them to transfer to a four-year university before they have completed their associate’s degree,” Anderson said. “We encourage such students to take advantage of this because it is always better to have earned a degree from a two-year college than to not have done so.”
