UTICA, N.Y. -- SUNY Poly and Herkimer County Community College signed an articulation agreement today.
The two college's held a ceremony on the campus of SUNY Poly, the agreement provides eight new transfer pathways.
It also helps graduating Herkimer College students by making it a smooth and seamless transition to SUNY Poly.
This is the first of many ventures between the colleges, they're currently working on a dual admissions agreement.
A lot of behind the scenes work went into the success for the partnership.
“I really have to give credit to our admissions staff, as well as our transfer counselors and all of our academic faculty and staff that identified programs that we currently offer at Herkimer and programs at SUNY Poly. So everyone getting together and saying this works and this is the right things to do,” said Cathleen McColgin.
Herkimer College students will be able to take advantage of the agreement beginning this fall.
