PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – April 20, 2018 – St. Joseph’s College (SJC) and Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) have amended a pre-existing articulation agreement between the two colleges to include the transfer of students from SCCC’s A.A. in Liberal Arts and Sciences with an emphasis in Psychology to the B.A. in Psychology at SJC in order to complete a degree with two years of study as a full-time student.

“This agreement further strengthens our already solid partnership with Suffolk County Community College and their students,” said Kathleen Magistro, director of undergraduate admissions at SJC Long Island. “Students will benefit from the preparation they received at Suffolk Community and be able to immerse themselves at St. Joseph’s in research, related internships and targeted electives that will prepare them for their careers and graduate programs.”

The amendment was created to foster the pre-existing mutually-beneficial relationship between the two Long Island colleges. This change will assist students who have earned their associate’s degree from SCCC to further their education and obtain a bachelor’s degree from SJC while also expediting the transfer process for students.
