Triton College and Concordia-Chicago sign articulation agreement for business degrees



A newly signed articulation agreement will allow Triton College students to easily transfer credits to nearby Concordia University Chicago in River Forest, where they can complete their Bachelor of Arts degree or Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree. Under the agreement, Triton students who have earned their associate degree in business administration, business management, or accounting and finance, can transfer their credits to Concordia-Chicago's College of Business.

"This articulation agreement strengthens our partnership with Concordia University and provides Triton students with a seamless opportunity to further their education towards attaining the bachelor's degree," said Dr. Doug Olson, vice president of Academic and Student Affairs at Triton College. "They can gain their foundational requirements and preliminary business experience at Triton and then transition to Concordia with some solid affiliations with our business program."

The program is designed so that it is possible to earn both an associate and bachelor's degree within four years: The first two years of a student's education will take place at Triton College, and the final two years will be at Concordia-Chicago. Under the agreement, students must meet the admissions requirements of both schools. Both institutions will provide advisors to assist each student in planning their program of study.

"We are looking forward to welcoming students from Triton College to attain their bachelor's degrees here," said Dr. O. John Zillman, interim senior vice president for Academics at Concordia University Chicago. "By establishing this valuable partnership and through close collaboration, our two institutions are fostering the pathway to graduation and profession. It's a very natural connection as we are both serving students in many of the same communities already."

In early 2015, the two institutions collaborated on a separate agreement creating a seamless pathway for students seeking bachelor's degrees in elementary or early childhood education.
