High School Inks College Credit Deal With SVSU 6-23-2010

Students at the Saginaw Career Complex have the opportunity to earn college credit at Saginaw Valley State University through a new articulation agreement developed by both schools.
It marks the first time SVSU has entered into such an agreement with a high school.
The university said Wednesday that the arrangement is a result of an $855,000 grant SVSU received in 2009 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, specifically its Registered Nurses program.
Through 2012, up to 30 SVSU students, 15 nursing and 15 pre-nursing, and 15 Saginaw Public Schools students will receive support each year to participate in mentoring, enrichment, and educational activities.
The articulation agreement was developed over the past year by faculty and staff from SVSU and SCC, based on a review of SCC courses that have content similar to some pre-professional courses offered at SVSU.
It allows grant participants with a record of successful completion of selected nursing and health careers courses at SCC to enroll at SVSU with up to 4 hours of college credit.
