CWI Partners with CSU-Global to Facilitate Bachelors Degree Completion for Student Success

Published: September 1, 2017

College of Western Idaho (CWI) is excited to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSU-Global). This agreement affords CWI graduates an additional, guaranteed, seamless transfer pathway at the junior level into any online bachelor’s degree at CSU-Global. 

“We are pleased to finalize this articulation agreement with CSU-Global, which provides tremendous value for our students and employees,” said David Shellberg, CWI’s Executive Vice President of Instruction and Student Services. “We couldn’t be happier to provide transfer opportunities to CSU-Global and the high quality online bachelor’s degree programs they offer.” 

CSU-Global Campus accepts up to 90 transfer credits, including up to 64 semester hours from junior, community, or career colleges, towards its bachelor’s degree programs. Students who have completed their associate’s degree from CWI are guaranteed admission. 

Through this agreement, CSU-Global will establish additional program-specific articulation agreements with CWI. These articulations provide a clear transfer pathway for students who have career and education aspirations beyond the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Applied Science degrees they have earned. 

Additionally, graduates of CWI will be eligible for CSU-Global’s Affiliate Two-Year Discount through this agreement. This discount is awarded to any student from a two-year affiliate school who enrolls at CSU-Global within one year of graduating from their associate’s degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher. These students receive a 10% tuition discount, which is locked for the duration of their bachelor’s degree program through CSU-Global’s Tuition Guarantee. 

“This relationship recognizes CSU-Global’s commitment to providing students with greater educational opportunities,” says Colorado State University-Global Campus Provost and Vice President, Dr. Jon Bellum. “As an online state university dedicated to student support, this MOU helps us become an active educational partner with CWI alumni who have completed a two-year degree and are looking to take their education to the next level by earning their bachelor’s degree.”
