December 31, 2020
Mahnomen, MN - Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2020 - White Earth Tribal and Community College (WETCC) has entered into Articulation Agreements with Bemidji State University, Metropolitan State University, Minnesota State University Mankato, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Southwest Minnesota State University, St. Cloud State University, and Winona State University, all who are institutions within the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system (MnSCU), the largest system within Minnesota.
By entering into the Articulation Agreements, WETCC will provide eligible students an opportunity to be dually admitted in both WETCC and one of the universities listed. One great feature of the dual admissions program that is included in the agreements, will allow students who attend WETCC the opportunity to be admitted into the university as a junior after completing their AA degree at WETCC.
This agreement is a huge accomplishment for administration at WETCC and will open the door for students to easily transfer to a four-year college or university. "We thank Chancellor Devinder Malhotra and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs Ron Anderson for the efforts made to bridge the divide between our colleges and make the transition to the Minnesota University system seamless for our students" said WETCC President Lorna LaGue.
"We are creating pathways that our students can follow by establishing these partnerships," said WETCC Academic Dean Brian Dingmann, "and hopefully, provide a more comfortable educational journey."
