Carl Albert State College and East Central University Solidify Transfer Agreements
Carl Albert State College (CASC) and East Central University (ECU) have signed agreements regarding general transfer and reverse transfer for students.
According to CASC VPAA Dr. Jason Morrison, a transfer agreement for students wishing to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training at ECU will benefit the CASC students in the Allied Health, Pre-Sports Medicine option. ECU’s athletic Training program is competitive entrance, and CASC sports medicine graduates will have a significant advantage when applying to ECU’s program.
Dr. Morrison explained reverse transfer. “If a student transferred to ECU prior to CASC graduation for whatever reason, reverse transfer will allow the student to obtain a CASC degree once courses are completed and documentation provided to CASC from ECU.”
Dr. Morrison stated due to budget issues and travel constraints, the agreement was signed by him at CASC, and by ECU Provost/VPAA Dr. Katricia Pierson at ECU. “The state may be facing difficult times, but we never stop working for the advancement of our students.”
“This agreement is a win-win situation for everyone,” said Dr. Katricia Pierson. “We are excited to work with Carl Albert State College to offer a program that really benefits students and their effort in pursuing a degree.”
