Several new articulation agreements between Delta College and Davenport University will allow Delta students to continue their education in the fields of nursing, chemical technology and cybersecurity.
The transfer agreements, which include two 3+1 agreements, permit students to transfer associate’s degree credits from Delta toward a bachelor’s degree from Davenport.
“Delta is a big supporter of continuing education, so being able to partner with Davenport to offer the opportunity for our students to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a top-notch university is very exciting,” said Stephanie Harrison, academic dean of Career Education and Learning Partnerships.
The agreement allows students in Delta’s associate’s degree nursing program to enroll concurrently at Davenport. Students can choose to go on to specialize in one of three master’s degree nursing concentrations: generalist, family nurse practitioner or nurse educator.
Through the 3+1 articulation agreement, students in Delta’s chemical technology program can earn a bachelor’s degree in biological laboratory science from Davenport. Students will complete three years, about 91 credits, at Delta and one year, about 35 credits, at Davenport.
Students in Delta’s computer science and information technology program can transfer to Davenport to earn a bachelor’s degree in cyber defense. Under the 3+1 agreement, Davenport will accept 90 credits, with only 30 credits remaining to complete the bachelor’s degree program.
Delta recently entered a statewide agreement with Western Governors University (WGU), an online university based in Salt Lake City, which provides many major tracks. The Michigan Community College Association signed the agreement on behalf of its member colleges.
Delta boasts more than 180 transfer agreements with universities in Michigan and beyond. Learn more at delta.edu/transfer.
