Articulation Agreement Creates Academic Pathway from LaGuardia Community College to St. John’s University

March 29, 2019

At a formal ceremony held on St. John’s Queens, NY, campus on March 22, an articulation agreement between the University and LaGuardia Community College was signed that creates a seamless process for students seeking to transfer from the college to the University.

“We are united by a shared mission—and that is the success of our students,” said Simon G. Møller, Ph.D., Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at St. John’s.

The new agreement between the two Queens-based institutions provides students with various associate-to-bachelor degree programs that will accept prior credits earned. Programs include biology, mass communication, cyber security, hospitality management, legal studies, speech-language pathology and audiology, and select business programs offered through The Peter J. Tobin College of Business

Paul Arcario, Ph.D., Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at LaGuardia, was pleased with the collaboration. “This articulation agreement enables the 20,000 students at LaGuardia to look to St. John’s University as a nearby option to complete their baccalaureate degrees,” he said. “LaGuardia students will not have to go far to continue their higher education.” 

The agreement takes effect immediately.
