A new agreement between Jefferson College and Saint Louis University will allow students who complete an associate’s degree at Jefferson College the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree at SLU in two years as a part of the 2+SLU program.
“Jefferson College and SLU have come together to ensure a flexible pathway for students,” said Jefferson College President Dr. Dena McCaffrey. “This new articulation agreement is another way Jefferson College is reaching out to four-year colleges and universities to provide options for our students to complete a bachelor’s degree so that they can achieve their career and personal goals.”
For students who begin their postsecondary education at a community college, with plans to later transfer to a four-year university, programs like 2+SLU are a valuable option.
“I’m so pleased that we are able to collaborate with Jefferson College to empower students to take the next step in advancing their education,” said Kathleen Davis, vice president of enrollment and retention management at SLU. “The 2+SLU program is a great opportunity for Jefferson College students to continue their education in SLU’s top-ranked programs.”
Designed to be flexible, students who earn an Associate of Arts degree at Jefferson College will have the chance to transfer to SLU to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in select degree programs.
Currently, 10 baccalaureate degree programs are available through the 2+SLU program, including:
Analytics and Enterprise Systems
Information Technology Management
Leadership and Human Resource Management
Jefferson College associate-degree seeking students can opt-in to the program at any point and are guaranteed that the SLU requirements completed at Jefferson College will not change for the entirety of the students’ academic career at SLU.
Participating students can take up to three years to complete the associate degree portion of a published program plan. For example, students following a 2020-2021 program plan will have until spring 2024 to transfer to SLU.
The agreement will go into effect with the fall 2020 semester, allowing Jefferson College students who have completed their associate degree to begin at SLU immediately.
