  • PCC, Fort Lewis College establish transfer degree options

    PUEBLO – Pueblo Community College and Fort Lewis College in Durango have collaborated on an agreement that establishes 18 transfer degree options for PCC graduates.

    Students who have an associate degree from any PCC campus in the designated programs can transfer into a Fort Lewis bachelor’s program to complete a four-year degree. In addition to its main Pueblo campus and Canon City branch, PCC has a campus in Mancos, a site in Durango and, beginning this fall, a site in Bayfield, all of which are in close proximity to FLC.

    In 2013, PCC expanded its partnership with FLC via the Colorado Community College System’s Admission Promise. It provided PCC students a guarantee of admission to the four-year school. The new agreement between the two institutions formalizes the transfer option for students and provides specific degree maps for students to follow at PCC and FLC.

    “The Admission Promise was an important initiative to strengthen our relationship with Fort Lewis and an avenue for our students to pursue a four-year degree,” said PCC President Patty Erjavec. “This year, both of our institutions came together to make sure that promise was fortified with a renewed commitment. A clearly defined pathway saves our students time and money, enriches the student experience, and contributes to their ultimate success.”

    College officials created degree maps for anthropology, biology, business, criminology and justice studies, early childhood education, economics, English, environmental studies, geology, history, math, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, public health, sociology and studio art. Paths in computer information systems and hospitality studies are planned soon.

    “As the regional four-year institution, we wanted to ensure our local community college students have access to the next step in their educational and career pursuits,” said FLC President Tom Stritikus.

    Every student that transfers to FLC is offered a pre-enrollment meeting with the transfer admission counselor, during which they can determine courses approved for transfer and discuss degree requirements and scholarship opportunities. Details are available on the Fort Lewis website.

    Enrollment is now open for PCC’s fall semester, which begins August 19. Visit the PCC website to learn more.
