Westchester Community College and The College of Westchester have collaborated on a new pathway to bachelor’s degree studies. An articulation between the two colleges was announced at a press conference on the Valhalla campus of Westchester Community College on Thursday, May 12.
Under this new partnership, fourteen of Westchester Community College Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), and Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees are now acceptable for transfer articulation through 17 different pathways into Bachelor degree programs at The College of Westchester.

Our liquid borders are being celebrated and recognized between two colleges who continue to be integral to the local and regional community.
