HANCEVILLE, Ala. – Jacksonville State University and Wallace State Community College have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop pathways for transfer from the community college to the university.

“We look forward to the strengthening of a partnership that has existed between our institutions for years,” said Wallace State President Dr. Vicki Karolewics. “Such opportunities enhance the prosperity of our region and our state.”

All public colleges and universities in Alabama are participants in the STARS statewide articulation system, a national model established by an act of the Alabama legislature in 1994, which guarantees seamless transfers of credit from community colleges to baccalaureate institutions.

In accordance with the new agreement, members of both institutions will work together to develop specific curriculum maps for STARS transfer programs.

“We are thrilled to be here and glad to engage in this partnership. We love our transfer students,” said Jacksonville State University President Dr. John Beeler.  “I see a lot of similarities between our campuses.”

Jacksonville State administrators, faculty and staff followed the meeting with a tour of Wallace State’s campus.
