College of the Albemarle President Dr. Robert Wynegar, seated left, joined ECSU Chancellor Dr. Karrie Dixon in signing two agreements. The purpose of the agreements is to build a relationship between the two institutions, and create a clear pathway for COA students to transfer to ECSU.

Elizabeth City State University and College of the Albemarle are officially partners in education after the signing of two agreements between the institutions Thursday, March 7.

ECSU and COA officials met to sign a co-admission agreement, and a kinesiology program agreement. Both agreements create a pathway for community college students to transfer to ECSU from COA with ease.

“This is just a first step,” said ECSU Chancellor Karrie Dixon. “Today we are demonstrating one of many ways ECSU and COA will collaborate.”

The co-admission agreement, according to Dr. Dixon, will allow COA students to form a relationship with ECSU while attending the community college. It will, she said, give these students a chance to become a part of the ECSU community, making their transfer to the four-year institution smooth and seamless.
