One-Plus-One Transfer Agreements
JCC has special arrangements with Medaille College in liberal studies. Under these "one-plus-one" agreements, students normally spend one year at JCC and then transfer to Medaille College to complete the second year of the degree program. Through appropriate course selection in consultation with an academic advisor at JCC, students prepare for successful transfer and earn their degrees from the transfer institution.
Liberal Studies Program
Transfer Agreement (.pdf)
Students can complete one year of study at JCC and then transfer to Medaille College into liberal studies.
- General guarantee of admission and transfer of courses: Students who have achieved a minimum cumulative Jamestown Community College grade point average of 2.5 are guaranteed admission into the A.S. Liberal Studies degree program at Medaille College. Those who transfer at least 30 credit hours are guaranteed full sophomore status. Students can transfer toward meeting Medaille College degree requirements up to 30 credit hours from the courses listed in Appendix A. When a JCC course carries more credits than an equivalent Medaille College course, the excess credits will transfer as elective credits. For example, MAT 1600 Precalculus (4 credits) will transfer as MAT 115 Pre-Calculus (3 credits) plus 1 credit of MAT electives.
- General guarantee of opportunity to graduate and progress: Students who graduate from Jamestown Community College having taken a minimum of 30 credits from the courses listed in Appendix A of this agreement are guaranteed the opportunity to earn the associate’s degree with two continuous semesters of full-time study at the normal coursework rate of 15 or more credits per semester at Medaille College.
