Articulation agreements specify course requirements and illustrate transfer credits between institutions. Dr. Kim Ennis, interim president of Bevill State, and Birmingham-Southern President Linda Flaherty-Goldsmith, said in a press release that they are happy the new agreement will allow students even more opportunities to expand their education. “We are so excited to partner with Bevill State and to welcome their graduates to join the Birmingham-Southern community,” Flaherty-Goldsmith said. “This agreement will make the transfer process more efficient and effective so that students can complete their bachelor’s degrees in the personalized, transformative environment we offer.” Ennis added, “Bevill State Community College is committed to the success of all of our students. We welcome partnerships such as the one we have created with Birmingham-Southern. It allows for a seamless transition for our academic transfer students with intentions to attend Birmingham-Southern.” Birmingham-Southern recently announced lower tuition rates and has signed other articulation agreements with two-year colleges such as Bevill State, including Wallace State Community College, Jefferson State Community College and Lawson State Community College. The agreement between Bevill State and Birmingham-Southern will go into effect this academic year.
