SVSU, Bay-Arenac ISD reach agreement on health and human services credit transfer

HHS Students-K.SchachmanLeaders with Saginaw Valley State University and Bay-Arenac ISD Career Center recently demonstrated their shared community-minded commitment by signing an articulation agreement to benefit students planning careers in the health professions.

The agreement allows graduates of six programs at the Bay-Arenac ISD Career Center – dental occupations, forensic science, health technology/medical science, nursing assistant, physical therapy/occupational therapy/sports medicine, and veterinary science – to transfer credits to SVSU.

Qualifying Bay-Arenac ISD Career Center graduates would be able to allocate credits toward SVSU degree programs in kinesiology.

The agreement allows qualifying students the opportunity to progress more efficiently through their programs of study, SVSU leaders say.

“Both SVSU and the Bay-Arenac ISD Career Center have high standards in academic expectation, and in this case, those mutual standards are going to benefit students in their pursuit of an academic degree,” said Judy Ruland, dean of SVSU’s College of Health & Human Services.

“Both of our institutions want to help our students efficiently and effectively achieve their desired program of study, and this agreement will do just that.”
