Stetson Signs Articulation Agreement with Valencia College
Stetson University and Valencia College have signed an articulation agreement that will allow students graduating with an associate degree in accounting to seamlessly complete their Bachelor of Business Administration in the accounting program at Stetson’s School of Business Administration.
The articulation agreement, which takes effect immediately, is Stetson’s first transfer plan in the School of Business Administration.
“Partnering with Valencia College to ease the transition of Valencia students into the accounting program at Stetson University’s School of Business Administration provides a great example of an excellent public-private partnership in higher-education,” said Neal P. Mero, Ph.D., dean and professor of management in Stetson’s School of Business Administration. “Stetson benefits from being able to work with Valencia’s quality students, and those students benefit from completing their undergraduate degree from the premiere AACSB accredited accounting program provided by our M.E. Rinker Sr. Institute of Tax and Accountancy.”
Stetson’s accounting program is designed to provide students with a strong understanding of accounting, taxation, information systems and business and, ultimately, prepare students for a multitude of careers as an accounting, financial or management professional.
“We are pleased to partner with Stetson University to provide this clear pathway for Valencia College graduates interested in a bachelor’s degree in accounting,” said Terry Allcorn, Ph.D., dean of Business at the West Campus of Valencia College. “The agreement speaks to the commitment of both institutions to prepare students for success in the accounting field.”
Stetson University rewards academically talented students with merit scholarships in addition to grants, loans, student employment opportunities and more.
