Renewed articulation agreement with Central Texas College

FAYETTE, Iowa (February 19, 2020) – Central Texas College (CTC) studentswill continue to find it easy to transfer credits toward completion of a business administration degree at Upper Iowa University (UIU) after the two educational institutions announced a recently renewed articulation agreement.

The agreement includes a course-by-course crosswalk for more than 100 courses, allowing CTC students to transfer in those areas toward a bachelor’s degree. The agreement covers coursework in accounting, business administration, human resource management, information systems, criminal justice and psychology. Articulation agreements allow the two institutions to maximize the amount of credits that transfer to UIU, decreasing the time spent in earning their degree at the University, thus enabling students to save time and money in the pursuit of their education.
