Alma College, Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College Sign Articulation Agreement
Leaders from Alma College and the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College in
Mount Pleasant have signed an articulation agreement that provides easy
transfer for Tribal College students who wish to complete their studies
toward a baccalaureate degree at Alma College.
Tribal College students who complete the requirements for an associate’s degree can transfer credits to Alma College, said Alma President Saundra Tracy.
“This articulation agreement is a statement of cooperation between our institutions that provides for a smooth transition for Tribal College students at Alma College,” said Tracy. “Our hope is that this agreement is a first step toward exploring other areas for future cooperation and the sharing of experiences between our students, faculty and staff.
“We’re excited about the potential for engaging Tribal College students in ways that can enrich the Alma campus community,” she said.
The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College, a non-profit, higher education institution established by a 1998 resolution of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council, offers two-year associate of arts degrees in liberal arts, business and Native American studies.
“We look forward to working with the faculty and administration of Alma College in the future to the mutual benefit of Alma College students and Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College students,” said Tribal College President Karen Radell.
Alma College, founded in 1886, is a nationally recognized private liberal arts college that highlights personalized education, social responsibility and extraordinary achievement. The College offers 28 majors, interdisciplinary studies and pre-professional programs in dentistry, engineering, law, medicine and occupational therapy.
