BETWEEN LAKE REGION STATE COLLEGE
AND PARK UNIVERSITY
This formal program articulation agreement is made and entered into by Park University, hereinafter referred to as Park, and Lake Region State College, hereinafter referred to as LRSC. By this agreement LRSC and Park express a shared commitment to increasing opportunities for student access to and success in higher education. By clarifying transfer policies and procedures, which assure articulation between programs, the institutions seek to assist students in making a seamless transfer from the associate to the baccalaureate degree.
This agreement provides students who have earned an Associate of Arts or specified Associate of Applied Science the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Science at Park. Any LRSC student who has earned an Associate of Arts or specified Associate of Applied Science and adheres to the guidelines within this agreement is guaranteed that Park will accept designated freshman and sophomore education credits and all general education credits and will apply such to the Bachelor of Science degree in a manner consistent with the treatment of native Park students.
CONDITIONS OF TRANSFER:
Section I: Admissions and Matriculation
LRSC students maintaining continuous enrollment under this agreement will be afforded the same treatment and protection as native Park students enrolled under a specific catalog.
Criteria for acceptance into Park will be the same for transfer as for native students.
LRSC, upon request of students, will provide verification of completed courses to Park through its Office of Admissions and Records. The transcript of students transferring from LRSC will be evaluated by the Registrar’s Office at Park.
Transfer students from LRSC will have access to financial aid, scholarships, and student services on the same basis as native students.
Minimum grade of “C” in all courses must be maintained to qualify for transfer under this articulation agreement. Completion of the residency requirement: 30 hours of earned and graded college hours at Park. At least 15 of these 30 hours must be in the major core.
Park will apply the same academic progress and graduation standards to LRSC transfer students as those applicable to native students at Park.
Section II: Transfer of Credit
A maximum of 75 credit hours will be accepted by Park from LRSC to be applied to the Bachelor of Science in Management.
Transfer students from LRSC, upon acceptance into the Management program at Park, will have junior standing at Park.
Section III: Program Plan
While a course-by-course equivalence was used in the development of this plan, this agreement presumes that the general education core requirements at LRSC meet all freshman and sophomore level university studies requirements of Park. Students falling under this program articulation agreement will be responsible for successfully completing the prescribed requirements (see attached curriculum displays.)
