SEASIDE, Calif., May 15, 2017 – Monterey Peninsula College (MPC) and CSUMB solidified a new pathway program Monday, May 15, 2017 allowing for dual enrollment between institutions for students seeking to complete a bachelor’s in business administration or marine science at CSUMB.
The memorandum of understanding (MOU) seeks to address a regional and national need for trained professionals in both business and marine science, and will provide new educational and career opportunities for MPC and CSUMB students.
The dual admission program will support qualified freshman students through four years in college, at both MPC and CSUMB, with scholarships, advising, tutoring, internships and project opportunities. The pilot program is slated to begin in fall 2017 and will include a cohort of 40 students.
Qualified students will be admitted to CSUMB provided they meet eligibility requirements and attend classes at both CSUMB and MPC campuses.
CSUMB and MPC also plan to develop a pathway program for undeclared majors to take courses in the General Education Transfer Curriculum. The duration of the agreement is for five years and then will be subject to review by the collaborating parties.
