Students taking courses for an associate’s degree at East Central College can now take classes for their bachelor’s degree at S&T during the same semester.

The Missouri Department of Higher Education approved the new concurrent enrollment program this past fall through legislation approved in 2016. It is designed to help students earn a degree in less time with fewer expenses.

Two students piloted the program at East Central during the fall semester, and more are expected to enroll in the spring 2018 semester.

S&T and East Central have worked together for more than 40 years through a transfer agreement that allows East Central students to transfer into more than 40 different degree programs. That agreement required students to complete their coursework at East Central before transferring.
