Seacoast colleges sign ‘co-location’ agreement for students
The one in Portsmouth will allow students to take up to 90 credits with Great Bay and then transfer for their last year into Granite State. But during that last year they will still take classes at the Great Bay campus thanks to the co-location agreement.
An analysis is currently underway to determine more program matches between the two colleges.
“We always encourage continuing education for our students graduating from the nursing program. We are familiar with the aspects of what an advanced career brings and what the career demands,” McCurley said.
“The only way to do that is collaboration and cooperation,” Leach said.
For now, Granite State will house an academic adviser on the second floor of Great Bay’s campus, and classes will be taught on the GBCC campus around the existing schedule.Will Arvelo, president of GBCC, said they are involved in many different initiatives involving collaboration with the community.
During the celebration, GSC presented a $30,000 check to GBCC for 15 student scholarships.
Granite State College has nine other campuses around New Hampshire, including another one on Pease International Tradeport, down the street from GBCC.
