Alabama A&M University and J.F. Drake State Community and Technical College have signed a memorandum of understanding that will allow students to begin their academic careers at Drake State to earn course credit as they prepare to transfer to AAMU.
“The Pathways Program offers access to a high quality and affordable education for resolute learners,” stated Gary B. Crosby, vice president for student affairs at Alabama A&M University. “Students enrolled in specific programs under this agreement will concurrently enroll in courses at AAMU to strengthen their college preparedness.”
Participating students will follow an approved course of study that will only require courses needed for graduation from Drake State and that automatically transfer to AAMU. Through this curriculum, the program aims to increase credential attainment and to eliminate any hurdles that may exist in the transfer process.
