Officials from Madison College and Edgewood College formalized three academic agreements that streamline the pathways into high-demand career fields. Students from both institutions will enjoy increased opportunity to leverage the strengths of each college.
Graduates from Madison College's IT - Web Software Development or Mobile Applications Development program may transfer to Edgewood and earn a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems. The new pathway will also enable Edgewood CIS students to add a concentration in Web Software Development or Mobile Development, by completing coursework at Madison College.
The second agreement, allows graduates of Madison College's Web and Digital Media Design degree program to transfer to Edgewood and complete a four-year degree in Web Design and Development.
Graphic Design graduates will benefit from the third agreement that will allow them a seamless transfer process to an Edgewood bachelor's degree in that field. Transfer students from the Web and Digital Media Design and Graphic Design programs will automatically be considered for merit-based academic scholarships.
The agreements are effective beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year.
