HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) — A new agreement will allow graduates from two Connecticut community colleges to easily transfer to Quinnipiac University.

The president of both Gateway Community College in New Haven and Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport has reached an agreement with Quinnipiac's president, guaranteeing Gateway and Housatonic graduates are admitted into a bachelor's degree program as third-year students.

They must have graduated from the state-run community colleges with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and an associate degree in arts or an associate degree in science in business, engineering science, nursing or allied health. The students must also satisfy other transfer admission requirements at the private university and requirements for their major.

The agreement also allows students to take one Quinnipiac course annually, free of charge, while enrolled at Gateway or Housatonic.
