Cloud County Community College and Fort Hays State University signed a memorandum of understanding Tuesday morning to update transfer agreements.

The agreement will facilitate the seamless transfer of students from Cloud County to Fort Hays. The agreement supports 19 academic articulation agreements, meaning Fort Hays will honor course credit earned under the approved programs for graduates with a 2.0 cumulative grade point average.

“Updating our transfer agreement with FHSU signifies the strong relationship that we have with the University, and ensures CCCC students will continue to have successful transfer experiences,” said CCCC Vice President for Academic Affairs Nancy Zenger-Beneda.

Cloud County has had a long-standing relationship with Fort Hays, the second most popular destination for Cloud County transferring students.

“Kansas Board of Regents data reveals that CCCC students perform better at FSHU than students transferring in from other community colleges,” Zenger-Beneda said. I’m very proud of our faculty and their focus on students’ performance and preparation.”

At Tuesday’s signing, FHSU President Tisa Mason said she was excited for the opportunity to continue the strong relationship with Cloud County.

“For the last six years, Cloud has been one of our top five schools for transfer students,” Mason said. “You share with us a strong commitment to academic quality and student success.”
