Arkansas Tech University and Arkansas State University-Beebe have entered into 2+2 transfer articulation agreements for students pursuing academic credentials in agriculture business, fisheries and wildlife science, biology and environmental science.

The agreements create seamless pathways for students completing associate degrees in corresponding programs at ASU-Beebe to complete bachelor’s degrees in their fields of choice at ATU in Russellville.

“This collaboration aligns with ATU’s mission-driven emphasis on providing student access,” said Dr. Robin E. Bowen, ATU president. “We are pleased to partner with our colleagues at ASU-Beebe to make this degree path available to students from White County and the surrounding region.”

Bowen and ASU-Beebe Chancellor Dr. Jennifer Methvin signed the agreements on behalf of the two institutions.

“We are excited to partner with ATU on these agriculture-related articulation agreements,” said Methvin, who holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from ATU. “We have a unique agriculture heritage and passionate faculty and deans to offer these transfer opportunities. This is a win-win for students at both institutions.”
