Central Methodist University and Linn State to sign agreement

Central Methodist University (CMU) and Linn State Technical College (LSTC) will sign a formal agreement on Tuesday, November 15 that will ensure qualified LSTC students can continue their educational goals with a smooth transition.

The signing will take place at 10 a.m. in the Rotunda of the LSTC Information Technology Center, and the public is welcome to attend.

The agreement provides students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science degree at LSTC the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Applied Science in Management or a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies-Entrepreneurship Emphasis from CMU on LSTC’s main campus in Linn, MO.

With this agreement, CMU and LSTC express a shared commitment to increasing opportunities for student access to and success in higher education.  The agreement allows students to make a seamless transfer from the associate to the baccalaureate degree.

LSTC President Dr. Donald Claycomb stated that LSTC has done an outstanding job of preparing technicians and this partnership with CMU will allow the development of its graduates in the areas of management and/or entrepreneurship.   “The partnership will also afford those in the greater Linn area an additional higher education option.”

“Linn State Technical College represents a significant benefit to the state of Missouri and our fellow citizens,” CMU President Dr. Marianne Inman said. “Central Methodist University is proud to be a partner with Linn State in this official way and to offer this additional baccalaureate degree opportunity to Linn State graduates.”

CMU classes are expected to begin in January.  Classes will run for eight-week periods with classes being held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  The courses will include Introduction to Logic, Macroeconomics and Introduction to Literature.
