Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) and Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) have announced an agreement that provides direct transfer opportunities between the two institutions. Through the partnership, SNHU guarantees transferability of all eligible credits earned in the following Mt. San Jacinto Associate degree programs to the corresponding SNHU bachelor’s degree program online:
- Mt. San Jacinto College Associate Degree (AA) in Nursing to SNHU Bachelor of Science (BS) RN-BSN degree, CCNE accredited
- Mt. San Jacinto College Associate of Science (AS) and Associates of Applied Science (AAS) degrees in Engineering: Drafting Technology, Manufacturing, Automotive and Transportation Technology, Turf and Landscape Management and Water Technology to SNHU Bachelor of Science in Technical Management II
Students can apply, access the PDFs of the pathways created and learn about other general transfer info
As SNHU is a regionally-accredited institution via the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, all academic coursework in which students earn a grade of “C-” or higher is fully transferable based on course equivalents. SNHU will accept up to 90 transfer credits from Mt. San Jacinto College toward a bachelor’s degree.
Based on the agreement, eligible MSJC graduates, MSJC employees and immediate family members of employees (spouse, domestic partners, children, siblings, and parents) will receive a ten percent (10%) tuition reduction for SNHU’s online programs, to commence with the official signing. Additionally, the agreement allows for a waiver of the application fee to SNHU. Programs offered at military tuition assistance levels are not subject to the reduction.
“Community college graduates often look for opportunities to continue their education by transferring credits to a bachelor’s degree program,” said William Hartglass, vice president of Strategic Partnerships at SNHU. “Partnerships, like this one with Mt. San Jacinto College, alleviate that concern by creating a direct pathway from an associate degree to a bachelor’s degree. We are always eager to work with community colleges that are looking to help students find ways to continue their education and achieve their personal and professional goals. This gives us the opportunity to share our resources and further our commitment to students.”
“Mt. San Jacinto College is proud to sign this agreement with Southern New Hampshire University,” said Dr. Roger Schultz, superintendent/president of MSJC. “This type of agreement makes higher education and transfer opportunities more accessible to our students.”
