Monday, Oct. 21, 2013
SALINA -- Students at Salina Area Technical College have new options for earning bachelor's degrees thanks to a new partnership with Kansas State University Salina.
K-State Salina and SATC have three 2+2 agreements that allow students to complete a Kansas State University bachelor's degree while staying in the community or taking classes online. Both institutions were eager to work together to provide an option that would enhance students' education and help the community.
"This agreement showcases how two higher education institutions in Salina can collaborate to provide the needed education for the next generation," said Pedro Leite, vice president of instruction at SATC.
"With the completed associate degree from SATC, students have the opportunity to take the remaining two years online through K-State to complete a bachelor's degree," said Verna Fitzsimmons, CEO and dean of K-State Salina.
The new 2+2 agreements allow students to earn a Bachelor of Science in technology management on top of an associate degree in applied science with one of three emphases: computer-aided drafting, commercial and advertising art, or dental assistant.
