Cincinnati State, Mt. St. Joseph sign academic agreement

Officials from Cincinnati State and the College of Mount St. Joseph have signed an articulation agreement designed to establish an efficient pathway for students.

The agreement stipulates that Cincinnati State students who graduate with an associate of arts, associate of science and other degrees and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA will be able to transfer all their academic credits and apply them toward a bachelor's degree at the College of Mount St. Joseph.

Transferring students might face other requirements to enter specific programs at the College of Mount St. Joseph, but in most instances they will not be required to repeat core courses they have already taken at Cincinnati State.

"This gives our students more options for their long-term educational plans," said Dr. Monica Posey, Academic Vice President at Cincinnati State. "We've long had articulation agreements with a number of schools in the region, and it's a pleasure for us to be able to build such a bridge to a college with such a fine academic reputation."

"The College of Mount St. Joseph is very pleased to continue to enrich the partnership with Cincinnati State to educate the citizens of Greater Cincinnati," said Maggie Davis, Ph.D., associate academic dean at the College of Mount St. Joseph.

Cincinnati State is a technical and community college that offers more than 100 certificate and associate degree programs in such areas as nursing and health care, engineering technologies, culinary arts, humanities and sciences.  Its current enrollment is about 10,550.

The College of Mount St. Joseph, founded in 1920 by the Sisters of Charity, is a Catholic liberal arts college. With an enrollment of about 2,300, it offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees across a wide variety of programs.

The agreement between Cincinnati State and the College of Mount St. Joseph comes in the context of efforts by Ohio policymakers to make it easier for students to transfer from one institution of higher education to another. The recent transition of all Ohio colleges and universities to a semester-based academic calendar is part of this effort, as are institution-specific agreements such as this.

Among the details of the articulation agreement between Cincinnati State and the College of Mount St. Joseph:

  • Transfer students will be accorded the same class standing and other privileges as native students.
  • The Mount will guarantee admission and afford junior standing to all students who have earned an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from Cincinnati State, provided their grade point average is at least 2.0 for all previous college-level courses.
  • Transfer students from Cincinnati State will be considered for admission to selective programs at the College of Mount St. Joseph (involving majors and minors or fields of concentration) under the same guidelines that apply to native students.
  • All collegiate-level credit transferred from Cincinnati State shall be accepted toward the student's class standing and, when possible, articulated to specific College of Mount St. Joseph courses.
