Delaware Technical Community College and Widener University Delaware Law School have entered into an articulation agreement that will give students the opportunity to earn a bachelor of science degree in Legal Studies following their completion of a Criminal Justice Associate Degree at Delaware Tech.
Under the agreement, students who have completed their associate degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher will automatically be accepted into the Legal Studies baccalaureate program at Widener University and can transfer up to 57 credits to Widener University Law School.
According to Delaware Tech President Mark T. Brainard, "This agreement provides a valuable pipeline for our criminal justice and paralegal students with a pathway to a bachelor's degree or law school after leveraging the SEED Scholarship program here at the college."
"The Widener University Delaware Law School is thrilled to once again sign an articulation agreement with Delaware Tech, as we continue to enlarge the friendship and cooperation between these two Delaware educational institutions,” said Dean Rodney Smolla of Widener University Delaware Law School. “The agreement will be good for both institutions, for our shared students, and for the state of Delaware."
This agreement is the eighth connected degree program that Delaware Tech has with Widener University in areas including business, hospitality management, and computer information systems.
