Belmont College and Kent State University Secure Articulation Agreement

Belmont College and Kent State University Secure Articulation AgreementSt. Clairsville, OH (April 18, 2013) - An information session regarding recently signed articulation agreements between Belmont College and Kent State University was held at Belmont College on April 17. Dr. Kamal Bichara, Director of Engineering Technology at Kent State University was present and discussed the program benefits, requirements, and pathways with students.

Dr. Bichara stated that he feels very positive about the agreement with Belmont College. “These agreements with Belmont feel like a very natural fit,” he said. “Students who follow the assigned pathways will be able to transfer all of their coursework from Belmont College and have it apply to a bachelor’s degree with Kent State University.”

The partnership will aid Belmont College students by making a four-year degree opportunity at Kent State University more efficient to achieve. This arrangement will assure Belmont students that specified Belmont courses taken within the two year programs will transfer to Kent and be applied to the corresponding specified bachelor’s degree.

The articulation agreements allow for transition from two years at Belmont College with a completion of an associate’s degree in civil engineering or industrial electronics and then completion at Kent State University with a bachelor of engineering technology degree for the following degree programs:

  • Belmont College Civil Engineering to Kent State’s Manufacturing/Mechanical/Systems concentration and 2+2 Integrated Engineering Technology concentration
  • Belmont College Industrial Electronics to Kent State’s Green and Alternative Energy and Electrical/Electronics

“The partnership between Kent State University and Belmont College will provide our students with distinct advantages for attaining a bachelor’s degree. For example, the cost of the degree will be more affordable, as students will not have to repeat courses upon transfer. In addition, time-to-degree can be lessened as a result. A quality bachelor’s degree can begin at Belmont College without leaving home,” stated Dr. Rebecca J. Kurtz, Belmont College Vice President of Learning and Student Success.
