Dr. Emily Cutrer, CSUSM’s Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, MSJC Superintendent/President Dr. Roger Schultz and MSJC Board President Joan Sparkman signed a transfer agreement on Jan. 18 at the state university’s Temecula location.
The memorandum of understanding (MOU) will increase the transfer rate of MSJC students to CSUSM-T by providing a clear pathway for transfer admission to baccalaureate programs. It will increase the college-going rate within the local district and strengthen existing articulation efforts between MSJC and CSUSM-T.
Dr. Cutrer called the agreement historic and said it will help pave the way for students to reach their educational goals.
Mrs. Sparkman praised the great relationship between MSJC and CSUSM as a key to building more educational opportunities for the area’s residents.
Dr. Schultz called the agreement a milestone that will help transform the lives of students.
CSUSM has previously signed nine other similar agreements with K-12 schools, districts, government agencies and a Native American tribe. This is the first such agreement with an institution of higher learning.
MSJC has a host of transfer agreements with public and private universities. For more about those agreements, click here.
