Central Maine Community College and Southern New Hampshire University Launch Fifteen Articulation Agreements

April 20, 2021

Auburn, ME – Central Maine Community College (CMCC) has partnered with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU), the largest nonprofit provider of online higher education in the country, on over a dozen articulation agreements, allowing CMCC graduates to seamlessly transfer into an online baccalaureate degree program at SNHU.

Through the agreements, CMCC graduates who earn an associate degree in business administration and management, business administration and management transfer, graphic communications, medical assistant, physical fitness specialist, criminal justice, human services, and nursing will be able to transfer up to 90 credits to be applied to a bachelor’s degree program at SNHU.

“We’re excited to have these new articulation agreements with SNHU, continuing our long-standing relationship with one of the nation’s leading online degree institutions,” says Liz Oken, CMCC’s director of placement and transfer services. “These transfer agreements link CMCC’s associate degree programs to SNHU bachelor’s degree programs. In some cases, students can take additional CMCC courses beyond the associate’s degree to maximize their transfer credits while decreasing the overall cost of their bachelor’s degree.”

Under the terms of the agreement, CMCC alumni, employees, and immediate family members – spouses, domestic partners, children, siblings, and parents – will receive a 10 percent tuition reduction at SNHU. SNHU will also waive application fees and will cover the cost to order a student’s official transcripts, making the transfer to SNHU as seamless as possible.

“At SNHU, we partner with a number of community colleges across the country to help students seamlessly transfer their credits, and we’re proud to partner with Central Maine Community College,” said Jennifer Batchelor, interim senior vice president of global campus, SNHU. “Our hope is that these new degree pathways will help hundreds of Central Maine Community College graduates on the path to their bachelor’s degree.”
