Morehouse College Enters Transfer Agreement With Connecticut State Community College

Connecticut State Community College in Hartford has signed an agreement with historically Black Morehouse College in Atlanta. The agreement will provide stronger pathways for male students at Connecticut State Community College students aspiring to attend the private, all-male HBCU.

The new partnership aims to streamline the transfer process for students, ensuring a seamless transition and a supportive environment as they pursue their higher education goals.

Connecticut State Community College enrolls about 2,400 students, according to the most statistics from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 37 percent of the student body.

“Several years ago, we started to think about how we introduce the likelihood that we will find the best Black male talent available in the country, but also to think about the fact that many African American men don’t go straight to four-year colleges,” said Morehouse President David A. Thomas. “So we’ve been on a very deliberate mission to identify the most outstanding community colleges in the country that also have a reputation for serving Black men well and creating these kinds of partnerships.”

Through the partnership, admission is guaranteed to Morehouse’s traditional and online programs for male Connecticut State Community College who meet the criteria and have earned a minimum GPA of 2.7 and an associate degree. Students who transfer with an associate degree and all credits in good standing will enter Morehouse College with junior status. Morehouse will provide academic advising and enrollment support to Connecticut State Community College students prior to and during the transition.
