The College of Idaho, TVCC enter articulation agreement
2011. 03. 16.
The College of Idaho and Treasure Valley Community College today formalized an articulation agreement that enables students to transfer easily to the Caldwell liberal arts college from the two-year community college on the Idaho-Oregon border. The agreement allows students from TVCC to take advantage of The College of Idaho's distinctive PEAK curriculum, which launched last fall and combines a broad liberal arts education with specialization in multiple fields to help graduates succeed in a constantly changing professional world.
“We are proud to join with TVCC in easing the path for students to earn a bachelor's degree,” said C of I President Marv Henberg. “Our PEAK curriculum provides a renewed appeal to transfer students, and we welcome this opportunity to help them come to The College of Idaho.”
Students who earn an associate's degree from TVCC will be granted junior standing at C of I, including up to 70 transfer credits. These students will be required to complete one PEAK major and one minor to earn a bachelor's degree at C of I. Students who earn 28-to-59 credits at TVCC will be granted sophomore standing and will be required to complete one PEAK major and two minors at C of I.
Acknowledging that a number of TVCC students already transfer to C of I each year, TVCC President Dana M. Young said this new agreement will help improve the transfer process for more students.
"We are thrilled to partner with an institution that is student-centered and dedicated to academic success,” Young said. “This agreement provides TVCC students with an easy-to-follow plan for moving from TVCC to The College of Idaho and also helps us promote that option for our students.”
Treasure Valley Community College is the third school to enter an articulation agreement with The College of Idaho since the PEAK curriculum launched, joining College of Western Idaho and College of Southern Idaho.
Founded in 1891, The College of Idaho is the state's oldest private liberal arts college. It has a century-old tradition of educating some of the most accomplished graduates in Idaho, including six Rhodes Scholars, three Marshall Scholars, and another ten Truman and Goldwater Scholars. The College is located on a beautiful campus in Caldwell, Idaho. Its distinctive PEAK curriculum challenges students to attain competencies in the four knowledge peaks of the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences and a professional field, enabling them to graduate with an academic major and three minors in four years.
