Clark State College and Wright State University to hold signing ceremony on renewal of partnership for pathway to bachelor’s degree

September 28, 2021

Clark State College and Wright State University are renewing their partnership in helping provide a pathway for students to complete a bachelor's degree program, a partnership that has increased access and affordability.

A signing ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m., Friday, Oct. 1 in the Wright Brothers Room at the Wright State Student Union, 3640 Colonel Glenn Highway, Fairborn.

The two schools have developed articulation agreements that are approved 2 + 2 programs.

“For Clark State students, two plus two must equal four,” said Dr. Jo Alice Blondin, president of Clark State. “We want to ensure that students have affordable, clear and consistent pathways to a four-year degree after taking two years at Clark State, and Wright State is an excellent partner in scaling these pathways for our students and providing access to more than fifty degree pathways. Our partnership and collaboration represent a win for our students.”

Students receive joint advising and other support from the two schools through the Wright Path Program to ease the transition to Wright State, helping make sure students take the right courses and their credits transfer.

Wright Path students are eligible for transfer scholarships valued at up to $3,500 per year, have access to libraries at both schools, and can participate in Wright State student organizations and clubs and live in Wright State campus housing while studying at Clark State.

“Clark State has been an excellent partner, and renewing our partnership underscores our commitment to offer an affordable and accessible education for students in the region and to support workforce needs,” said Wright State President Sue Edwards. “Wright State looks forward to its continued strong relationship with Clark State.”
