Bethune-Cookman University Signs Its First Articulation Agreement in Its 114-Year History

Bethune-Cookman University, the historically Black educational institution in Daytona, Beach, Florida, signed a partnership agreement with Florida Gateway College. This is the first articulation agreement Bethune-Cookman University has signed with another institution since its founding in 1904.

The agreement will allow students who earn an associate’s degree to transfer their credits to Bethune-Cookman University in order to pursue a bachelor’s degree in more than 40 majors. Students transferring from Florida Gateway College will be eligible for early registration, application fee waivers, scholarship opportunities, and discounted tuition at Bethune-Cookman University.

Jason E. Glenn, vice president for student affairs and operations at Bethune-Cookman University, stated that “when you have two educational institutions working together to serve students, the opportunities are endless.”

Glenn joined the staff at Bethune-Cookman University in 2016. From 2011 to 2015, he was dean of students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Florida Gateway College is located in Lake City in northern Florida, about halfway between Jacksonville and Tallahassee. It enrolls about 3,200 students. African Americans are 12 percent of the student body, according to the latest U.S. Department of Education data.
