Castleton University issued the following announcement on Nov. 13.
Castleton University recently announced two new collaborative agreements with SUNY Adirondack and Greenfield Community College for degree completion. These agreements ensure that a Castleton education remains both accessible and affordable for students who otherwise might not have continued their educational pursuits.
The collaborative agreement with Greenfield Community College allows graduates to seamlessly enroll at Castleton. Graduates of GCC are eligible for the Maple Award and can attend Castleton at the Vermont in-state tuition rate.
Greenfield Community College is a fully-accredited, not-for-profit institution located in Greenfield, Massachusetts, offering more than 50 programs leading to an associate’s degree or certificate.
The university has also entered into a 2+2 agreement with SUNY Adirondack. This agreement provides a pathway for SUNY Adirondack students to transfer into Castleton’s Social Work program after earning an associate’s degree in Humanities and Social Science from SUNY. The agreement also makes it possible for graduates to attend Castleton at the in-state tuition rate.
SUNY Adirondack, located in nearby Queensbury, New York, is also fully-accredited and offers more than 30 associate-level degree and certificate programs.
Castleton has already begun accepting applications for GCC and SUNY Adirondack students to prepare to further their education after graduating in May. These agreements, along with other recent articulation agreements and pathways will continue to greatly enrich the undergraduate experience at Castleton and aid in the growth of Vermont’s economy and professional workforce.
