Crowder College and Southwest Baptist University finalized an articulation agreement on Thursday, May 28, which will allow students to seamlessly transfer from Crowder into SBU’s bachelor degree programs.

“Crowder College strives to expand partnerships and opportunities for all of our students to continue their academic journey beyond graduation,” said Keith Zoromski, associate vice president of academic affairs at Crowder College. “This articulation agreement serves as evidence that Crowder College values coordinating with each of its university partners to mutually support its students.”

The partnership also allows SBU the opportunity to engage students currently enrolled at the Neosho, Mo.-based community college, who are wanting to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a liberal arts Christian university.

“We are excited to partner with Crowder College in providing an avenue for students to earn their bachelor’s degree at SBU,” said Dr. Lee Skinkle, provost of SBU. “This agreement helps make that transition for students an easy one as they join the Bearcat family.”

This agreement will impact students pursuing an Associate of Arts degree at Crowder. The A.A. often is referred to as a “transfer degree” because it is designed for students who plan to continue their education beyond the associate degree level.


Southwest Baptist University is a leader among private universities in truly integrating Christ-centered academic pursuits with comprehensive professional programs at an affordable price. At SBU, the faculty and staff create a caring, academic community to prepare students to be servant leaders in a global society. For more information, visit
