CARNEY’S POINT, N.J. — Salem Community College (SCC) and Alfred University in New York have signed an articulation agreement that will seamlessly transfer graduates of SCC’s Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) program in Glass Art to Alfred University.
Alfred University, located in the city of Alfred in the western portion of New York, is a private university with approximately 2,000 undergraduates and 300 graduate students.
Alfred officials recently visited SCC’s Samuel and Jean Jones Glass Education Center to approve the agreement with President Michael Gorman, Dean of Academic Affairs/Chief Academic Officer Ken Robell and Assistant Dean of Glass Education Kristin Deady.
The articulation agreement allows SCC graduates with an AFA degree to transfer to Alfred’s Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program.
SCC glass students attended a presentation on Alfred’s glass program, faculty, facilities, financial aid and scholarships. AU alumna Astrid Hunter shared her experience as a student and graduate of Alfred University.
“We are very excited to formalize this partnership with Alfred University,” Deady said. “This articulation agreement is a wonderful opportunity to build upon the outstanding education our Glass Art students have received at SCC.”
