To facilitate the student's transition to Medaille, we maintain transfer articulation agreements with a number of regional postsecondary institutions. Most are major-specific 2+2 joint enrollment agreements that map out in clear, specific terms the curricular pathways for students to follow between their current academic program and their desired major at Medaille. These partnership agreements maximize the transferability of credits and their application toward program-specific and generic institutional graduation requirements at Medaille.
