SUNY CCC Signs Articulation Deal W/ Elmira College


Elmira College and SUNY Corning Community College signed a new transfer agreement that provides a smooth path for graduating CCC students to attend Elmira College, where they can earn a bachelor’s degree.

“This agreement is a testament to our mission – Empower Our Students. Elevate Our Community. – as it will create opportunities for our students to pursue a bachelor’s degree while staying close to home,” said Dr. William P. Mullaney, SUNY Corning Community College President. “We are particularly excited about the new, career-focused programs EC has been launching that pair well with CCC’s academic programs.”

“This agreement will help remove some of the financial obstacles for Corning Community College students who wish to earn a bachelor’s degree,” said Dr. Charles W. Lindsay, Elmira College President. “While CCC and EC have had academic articulation agreements in the past, this new agreement focuses on scholarships and guarantees that CCC graduates who meet grade point average criteria will receive generous funds.”

Students transferring to EC with an Associate’s degree from CCC with a grade point average of 3.3 or higher will receive a $20,000 Transfer Scholarship. Students transferring with a GPA of 3.2 and lower will earn a $15,000 Transfer Scholarship. Additional need-based grant funding will be available to students who qualify based on demonstrated need. Funding for these scholarships is renewable as long as the student is enrolled and remains in good academic standing.

Beyond the scholarship information, further details are outlined in the agreement. EC will transfer up to 68 credits earned at CCC toward the completion of a Bachelor’s degree. This applies to CCC students who receive an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree and have at least 54 college transfer credits. For their part, students must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher and the courses in which the grades were earned must apply to the degree. For full details and requirements, interested graduating CCC students should contact the Enrollment Advisement Center (EAC) at 607-962-9151.

“We are proud of this transformative partnership with Elmira College, which will provide a seamless pathway for our students to reach new heights and lessen the financial barriers to obtaining a four-year degree,” said Dr. Robert Koble, Vice President of Academic Affairs at SUNY CCC.

“Together, EC and CCC can help develop a local and regional workforce that has benefited from the emphasis our two institutions place on life-long learning, leadership, and community involvement,” said Dr. Patricia Ireland, Provost at EC. “We are excited to welcome CCC graduates and delighted to offer a more affordable journey towards a bachelor’s degree.”
