Asnuntuck Community College and Bay Path College are pleased to announce that a Joint Admissions Agreement has been approved by the two institutions. The agreement is designed to provide barrier –free movement from the associate degree to the baccalaureate and graduate degrees for students enrolled at ACC. Asnuntuck Community College President Martha McLeod and Bay Path College President Carol Leary signed the agreement at Asnuntuck’s campus on Tuesday, March 5, 2013.
Multiple opportunities will be afforded to ACC students choosing to take advantage of this agreement. Students participating in this process will receive consideration for various merit-based scholarships, they will be able to obtain jointly supported advisement and students will be afforded early and conditional acceptance into graduate school programs.
Dr. McLeod commented, “Asnuntuck graduates who have transferred to Bay Path often tell me about their success in classes that are characterized by high levels of academic challenge and having the opportunity to join in college activities that meet their personal and professional needs. Bay Path is a place that helps them to reach both their academic and personal potential.”
At the signing, Dr. Carol Leary stated, “We know that Asnuntuck provides a strong foundation for their students and cares deeply about their success on all levels. At Bay Path, we share that same commitment, and this agreement provides a seamless transition for Asnuntuck students to pursue and reach their career goals through internships, hands-on experiences, and opportunities, such as our Women’s Leadership Conference, that help build their leadership and professional skills.”
ACC’s Transfer Counselor Jill Rushbrook applauded the agreement, “We look forward to continuing this successful partnership with Bay Path College and are grateful for the time and effort that went into creating this mutually beneficial agreement between our two colleges.”
