- Monroe Community College (MCC) has formalized 2 Plus 2 Cooperative Degree Programs with selected public and private colleges and universities to insure full transferability of associate degree coursework toward baccalaureate study. The program evolved after a marketing research study revealed that: public perceptions of MCC were mixed and somewhat distorted; an increasing number of MCC students desired to transfer; articulation agreements were too complex or too vague; and up-to-date advisement information regarding course selections and transfer was needed. The program has the following distinguishing characteristics: (1) students pay one application fee for both institutions and maintain one set of records; (2) concurrent acceptance to both institutions is based on MCC admission requirements; (3) students are guaranteed admission to a four-year college with full junior status; (4) degree and grade requirements are specifically defined; (5) comprehensive resource manuals and computerized degree audit sheets facilitate departmental advisement; (6) MCC notifies the four-year institutions of the academic progress of 2 Plus 2 students; and (7) agreements are updated annually. Program success is evidenced by increases in admission inquiries, applicants, and new registrants and in total number of agreements. (UCM)
