SDSM& T AND CHADRON STATE COLLEGE SIGN AGREEMENT TO FACILITATE TRANSFER OF CSC STUDENTS TO SDSM& T
SDSM& T and Chadron State College recently signed an agreement that will make it easier for CSC students to transfer to SDSM& T. The new agreement will make it easier for pre- engineering students at Chadron State College to transfer to degree programs at SDSM& T.
The agreement establishes an authorized program of courses at Chadron State that will transfer and substitute for required courses at SDSM& T in engineering, science and math. CSC students who are planning to transfer to degree programs at SDSM& T will be assigned a mentor and will be entered into an individualized education plan at Tech while they are still attending CSC.
Dr. James Munro, Acting Dean of SDSM& T’s College of Chemical, Physical and Material Sciences and Engineering, hailed this agreement as “ an exciting first step in Tech’s reaching out to work more closely with other post- secondary institutions in providing quality educaitonal opportunities for students.” Munro stated, “ The true beneficiaries of this agreement are students. Under this agreement, students can begin their education at Chadron State College, knowing in advance that their courses will transfer to degree programs at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.”
Dr. Ted Davis, Dean of the School of Science and Mathematics at Chadron State College, said the two institutions have had an excellent working relationship over the years and the new agreement will improve the transfer process even more. The two institutions also are exploring the possibilities of using their interactive distance learning systems to bring pre- engineering courses from SDSM& T to Chadron State and liberal arts courses offered by Chadron State to SDSM& T.
In addition to this agreement with Chadron State College, SDSM& T officials are in the process of establishing other Memorandums of Understanding with other South Dakota universities and tribal colleges.
For additional information on the SDSM& T/ OLC agreement, please contact Dr. James Munro at 394- 2256.
