Students with credits at any Maricopa community college might be able to fast track themselves toward a bachelor degree in growing industries such as social work and health information management. The College of St. Scholastica, which opened a campus in Surprise earlier this year, will allow Maricopa County Community College students to transfer 100 percent of their credits.
St. Scholastica is a 102-year-old Catholic Benedictine college with a campus at the Communivertsity @Surprise. Students can study and gain valuable field experience in six program areas that are offered online.
Full transfer credit includes pathways to a bachelor of arts in business and technology studies, health informatics, management, marketing and organizational behavior. A bachelor of arts and sciences is available in computer science.
“We’re excited to partner with Maricopa Community Colleges to offer students a pathway beyond their associate’s degrees to these highly in-demand careers,” said Maria Laughner, regional director for St. Scholastica. “MCCCD students can now earn bachelor’s degrees from a top-tier private college.”
