    Our University Partners

    Edison State Community College has entered into partnerships with several universities to offer degree completion programs on the Edison State campuses and online. These partnerships are designed for adult students who have completed technical A.A.S., A.A.B., or A.T.S. degrees and wish to continue their education beyond the associate degree.

    Often times, these programs are accelerated or online. These programs apply more of the technical credits to a bachelor's degree than a traditional transfer program. However, A.A./A.S. degree students are also eligible for admissions to these programs. In many cases, the student may take additional coursework at Edison State before or during the time they are enrolled in the university.
