North Arkansas College (NAC) students can now enjoy a seamless pathway to earn Missouri State University degrees.

Missouri State Provost Dr. Frank Einhellig and Northark President Dr. Rick Massengale Sr. met in Harrison today (March 4) to sign a new articulation agreement.

Under this agreement, the two institutions will work together to develop transfer plans for NAC students who want to complete their bachelor’s degrees at Missouri State – either online or at the Springfield campus. It promotes the completion of bachelor's degrees within 120 credits. 

“This is the first of what we hope are many more future partnerships with MSU,” Dr. Rick Massengale commented. “Transfer partnerships with universities such as MSU are gateways to furthering one's education and help prepare our students for life after NAC.”

About transfer 2+2 plans
The transfer 2+2 plans offer a clear pathway to a bachelor’s degree and ensure students meet program requirements. Students will also be assured of course transferability for all programs through this agreement.

Ultimately, students can save time and money with these transfer 2+2 plans.

“At Missouri State, our goal is to offer a quality, affordable higher education to students who want a degree,” Einhellig said. “This new partnership reflects that commitment and we’re excited to welcome more NAC students to Missouri State.”
