Central Methodist University (CMU) in Fayette and Jefferson College in Hillsboro signed an extended articulation agreement on January 29, which will benefit students by enabling them to begin their education at Jefferson College and easily complete it with Central Methodist.

Signing the agreement were Central Methodist President Dr. Roger Drake and President Dr. Raymond Cummiskey of Jefferson College. 

Dr. Rita Gulstad, Provost at CMU, noted that these types of agreements make it easy for students to complete a bachelor’s degree. “Students earn their first two years at Jefferson College and are then able to seamlessly transition to CMU and complete their bachelor’s degree in two years” she said.  “It is through partnerships, such as the one with Jefferson College, that students can advance themselves in the workplace.”

Currently, Jefferson College, a community college in Jefferson County, offers associate degrees in arts, teaching, fine arts, science, and applied science. Jefferson and CMU already had articulation agreements in nursing and the health sciences. The further coupling with CMU will allow Jefferson students to transfer their credits and continue on to receive their bachelor degrees in any of their areas.

The University has articulation agreements with every community college in the state of Missouri. When students finish their associate degrees, they can continue with CMU by way of the St. Louis campus in Maryland Heights, the main campus in Fayette, other locations, or online in order to earn their Bachelor of Arts degrees or their Bachelor of Science degrees.
