    SouthArk and SAU sign transfer agreements

    SAU President Dr. Trey Berry and SouthArk President Dr. Barbara Jones sign three new 2+2 agreements to help students seamlessly start at SouthArk and complete bachelor’s degrees in Criminal Justice, Industrial Technology/Mechatronics and the Information Technology. 

    Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia and South Arkansas Community College in El Dorado are teaming up to educate, train, and inspire new and future social work practitioners to fill a need for Southwest Arkansas.

    Representatives from SAU and SouthArk met on July 6 to officially sign three 2+2 transfer agreements – Social Work, Industrial Technology/Mechatronics and Computer Information Technology. These 2+2 agreements will facilitate easy transfer of coursework with no loss of credit and greater affordability. They will begin fall 2016, and are the latest of several collaborations between SAU and SouthArk. Another recent 2+2 option is Criminal Justice, for which students have begun studies in El Dorado before easily transferring to the Magnolia campus to finish their degrees.
