John Brown University in Siloam Springs and Crowder College in Neosho, Mo., have signed an agreement that will allow for the easy transfer of credits between them.
The articulation agreement will offer students a pathway to earn an associate’s degree from Crowder, a two-year college, then complete their bachelor’s degree at JBU, as well as reverse transfer credit to complete their associate’s degree from Crowder.
Through the agreement, according to a news release, students are eligible to transfer into any of JBU’s traditional undergraduate programs on JBU’s Siloam Springs campus, or JBU’s online undergraduate programs.
“JBU strives to build lasting partnerships to create more opportunities for students to further their educational goals,” JBU President Dr. Chip Pollard said in a news release. “Through this agreement, we hope to build a bridge between Crowder and JBU so that students will more easily continue to pursue a high-quality education and receive the tools to be successful in their careers while also serving God and others.”
Students who graduate from Crowder, complete Crowder’s designated program courses and hold a GPA of 2.5 or higher are eligible for admission to JBU under the terms of this agreement.
“We’re very excited about signing the articulation agreement,” Crowder College President Dr. Glenn Coltharp said. “It opens the doors for many opportunities for our students and gives many options for them to continue their education. We offer many quality associate degrees that are a natural fit with JBU’s bachelor’s programs.
JBU enrolls more than 2,100 students from 38 states and 53 countries in its traditional undergraduate, graduate, online and concurrent education programs.
