BRANDON , MB – As part of their continued partnership, Assiniboine Community College (ACC) and Brandon University (BU) signed an articulation agreement today benefiting students in the Police Studies program and the Crime and Community program at each respective academic institution.

The agreement allows ACC Police Studies graduates credit for courses taken to go towards the three or four-year Bachelor of Arts, Crime and Community degree at BU. ACC will reciprocate this agreement by allowing BU graduates to transfer 18 credit hours towards the eight-month Police Studies certificate as well.

“This agreement is unique because it will benefit students from both programs. It’s also another great example of ACC’s continued partnership with Brandon University,” says Karen Hargreaves, Dean of the School of Health & Human Services at ACC.

“This police studies agreement between BU and ACC represents a practical step towards allowing students more seamless transitions in their post-secondary education. I hope it serves as a template for further agreements between our two schools,” says Dr. Bruce Strang, Dean of the Faculty of Arts at BU.

ACC and BU believe that this articulation agreement and transfer of credit arrangement is in the best interests of both institutions and their students.
