Unity College and York County Community College (YCCC) are pleased to announce a 2 PLUS 2 articulation agreement. A signing ceremony, representing the culmination of the agreement process, took place on Monday, April 28, 2014 at YCCC’s campus in Wells, Maine in the President’s office.

The intent of the agreement is to provide students who have completed an associate’s degree in Criminal Justice at YCCC the ability to transfer seamlessly to Unity College to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Conservation Law Enforcement. Students are guaranteed that they will enter Unity with Junior status, and every course they take at YCCC will transfer to Unity. 

“I am thrilled with this new partnership which will directly benefit our students.” said Tracey Cornell, a Criminal Justice faculty member at YCCC. “This will allow our students to work toward their career goals right here in Maine and further complement our already robust curriculum. Unity College is an exceptional school and the Criminal Justice program is fortunate to have them as a partner.”

“Unity’s focus on sustainability science meshes well with YCCC’s Criminal Justice program,” said Unity Provost Michael Evans. “Conservation law enforcement officers are the front lines of environmental protection, and this articulation agreement will give students excellent opportunities to prepare themselves for this important career.”
