Maryville University President Dr. Mark Lombardi (left) and JALC President Dr. Robert Mees recently signed an articulation agreement between the two schools to assist students in making a transfer from the Associate of Applied Science in the Interpreter Preparation, ASL/Deaf Studies and Educational Interpreting Professional Programs to the Rehabilitation Services Bachelor’s of Science degree at Maryville.
John A. Logan College and Maryville University in St. Louis recently signed an articulation agreement to assist students in making a seamless transfer from the Associate of Applied Science in the Interpreter Preparation, ASL/Deaf Studies and Educational Interpreting Professional Programs to the Rehabilitation Services Bachelor’s of Science degree at Maryville.
Both institutions recognize the value and benefit of the completion of the AAS degree as the first two years of a baccalaureate degree prior to transfer.
Any Logan student who has earned an Associate of Applied Science in Interpreter Preparation, ASL/Deaf Studies, or Educational Interpreting Professional programs is guaranteed that Maryville University will accept the associate of applied science degree intact as the first two years of the Rehabilitation Services Bachelor of Science degree.
“This program is valuable to our Interpreter students, because they have the opportunity to transfer to such an outstanding program without any concern,” said Dr. Julia Schroeder, Dean for Instructional Services at JALC. “Not only are they getting two outstanding degrees in the process, but they are also getting to work with two programs that have a great deal of success placing students after graduation.”
