Tabor and Hesston make articulation agreement

Tabor College announced Monday that it is partnering with Hesston College to provide HC students with the opportunity to continue their education after receiving a two-year degree.

According to Katrina Hancock, director of communications, the two schools have entered into an articulation agreement.

The agreement will allow eligible students graduating with an associate of arts degree or an associate of science degree from Hesston College to enter Tabor College as juniors?satisfying their general education core requirements.

?A similar provision is also available for Hesston graduates holding the associate applied arts and science degree in nursing to enter Tabor?s RN to BSN program,? Hancock said.

The articulation agreement, which goes into effect immediately, applies to students who transfer into Tabor College?s School of Adult and Graduate studies.

Brett Andrews, vice president of Tabor College said this partnership will benefit both schools.

?We are delighted to forge an even stronger bond with our sister institution, Hesston College, with this agreement,? Andrews said. ?It not only acknowledges the strong educational background that these students bring to Tabor College, but it also provides a consistency in the faith-based approach to higher education the students receive.?

Jules Glanzer, president of Tabor College, said he is excited that Hesston College graduates can continue learning with a seamless transition to Tabor.

?Serving students is the reason for our existence,? Glanzer said. ?When we can work together with other institutions in helping students achieve their educational goals, everyone wins. I am delighted that we have signed the agreement.?
