One college is a four-year private institution, and the other is a two-year state school. Their presidents, though, see great parallels between American International College in Springfield and Holyoke Community College, which entered into an articulation agreement on June 23, 2022.
The agreement allows for HCC students to transfer more smoothly to AIC, where they would enter as juniors after their two years at the community college. The purpose of such collaborations is twofold. It provides opportunities for incentives and the coordination of curriculum and credit transfers. It also simplifies or eliminates much of the paperwork headaches for students looking to transfer. Find out what both college presidents say about this agreement on MassLive. The joint articulation agreement signing was additionally covered by WWLP-22News, Western Mass News, BusinessWest, and Healthcare News.
