MCC AgreementPark University and Metropolitan Community College officials have signed a new articulation agreement that will allow MCC students in designated programs at its five campuses to easily transfer credits toward a bachelor’s degree at Park. The two schools have had academic cooperation agreements dating back to at least 2000. The new agreement is in effect through Sept. 30, 2020.

The agreement will allow:
          •  Dual admission for MCC students, allowing MCC students to be admitted to Park before taking classes at Park.
          •  Reverse transfer, allowing MCC students who have attended Park to transfer credits back to MCC to be used toward an associate degree.
          •  The possibility of Park University upper-division classes being taught at MCC’s campuses, providing convenience for MCC students to attain a Park bachelor’s degree.

While the majority of MCC students who transfer to Park attend the MCC-Maple Woods campus in the Northland area of Kansas City, Mo., the agreement includes the transfer of credits from all of MCC campuses, including: MCC-Business & Technology and MCC-Penn Valley in Kansas City, Mo.; MCC-Blue River in Independence, Mo., and MCC-Longview in Lee’s Summit, Mo.

The new articulation agreement was signed by Park University Interim President Jeff Ehrlich, Ed.D.

The two schools currently have 32 articulation agreements covering a variety of degree options.
