McKendree and Kaskaskia College 2+2 Agreements Ease Transfer for Eight Programs

(LEBANON, Ill., May 27, 2021) - McKendree University and Kaskaskia College recently established eight articulation agreements that enable students to advance their education and careers by ensuring a seamless transfer process for students seeking a bachelor’s degree.

The 2+2 articulation agreements between the institutions establish a set of Kaskaskia courses and credits accepted by McKendree. A Bachelor of Science in nursing agreement offers the option of dual enrollment and the acceptance and application of credits to nursing students at Kaskaskia. Additional program agreements for the Bachelor of Arts in history, political science, psychology, and sociology; Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting and business administration; and Bachelor of Science in exercise science and sports performance guarantee a student transferring from IECC may transfer to McKendree as a junior with the required courses in place for the selected major.

“McKendree University has always taken pride in being transfer friendly,” said Dr. Melissa Meeker, Dean of McKendree Worldwide. “We have a focused effort to expand our agreements with community colleges throughout Illinois and the greater St. Louis region to ease the process for prospective students.”

McKendree University works continually with community colleges throughout the state to develop articulation agreements and four-year transfer plans for students who complete their associate’s degree and go on to earn their bachelor’s degree at the university. McKendree currently offers more than 50 such agreements with 11 different community colleges.
