Cottey College and Crowder College Sign Articulation Agreement

NEVADA, MO—Officials from Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri, and Crowder College in Neosho, Missouri, are pleased to announce the signing of two separate articulation agreements between the two institutions.

            The first is a general transfer agreement noting that Crowder Associate in Arts or Associate in Science graduates with a 2.0 grade point average or higher will be admitted to Cottey with most general education requirements waived, will be eligible for transfer scholarships, and their application fee will be waived.

            The second transfer agreement is a specific 2+2 plan outlining an educational track for those Crowder graduates who wish to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, Organizational Leadership, or Business Administration-Management at Cottey.

“Cottey is excited to work with Crowder College to offer Crowder students the opportunity to continue their degrees at Cottey and to create incredible futures,” said Cottey President Dr. Jann Weitzel.

“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. “These articulation agreements serve as evidence that Crowder College values coordinating with each of its college and university partners to support transfer students mutually.”

            Crowder College is a two-year community college located in southwest Missouri. Established in 1963 the college serves a nine-county region in the state’s community college organization. With over 80 degree and certificate programs Crowder offers educational opportunities for those planning to transfer to a university or enter the workforce. The main campus is located in Neosho with instructional centers in Nevada, Cassville, McDonald County, Webb City and an Advanced Training and Technology Center in Joplin.

Cottey College, a nationally ranked women’s college located in Nevada, Missouri, was established in 1884 by Virginia Alice Cottey, a Missouri teacher who believed women deserved the same quality of education as men. In 1927, she gave her college as a gift to the P.E.O. Sisterhood, an international philanthropic organization focused on education for women. Cottey is the only nonsectarian college owned by women for women.
