SUNY Broome Executive Vice President and Chief Academic Officer Francis Battisti and Marywood University President Sr. Mary Persico

SUNY Broome and Marywood University recently signed two new transfer agreements for their accounting and nutrition and dietetics programs.

Articulation agreements allow students to finish the first two years of their bachelor’s degree at SUNY Broome, and then seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution to complete their bachelor’s degree without any loss of credit. SUNY Broome currently has such agreements in a wide range of programs with 28 different colleges and universities.

After finishing their A.S. degree in Health Studies, SUNY Broome students can transfer directly into Marywood’s Nutrition and Dietetics program. Similarly, Accounting majors at SUNY Broome can finish their Bachelor’s in Business Administration: Accounting at Marywood. USA Today ranked Marywood, based in Scranton, fourth on its list of the 10 Best Colleges to Study Health Professions.

“We’re honored to announce these new articulation agreements with an exceptional university like Marywood,” said SUNY Broome President Kevin Drumm. “These agreements ensure that every credit counts toward a valuable bachelor’s degree and saves students tens of thousands of dollars in the process.”

“This articulation agreement between Marywood University and SUNY Broome opens up a number of new opportunities for our students,” added SUNY Broome Executive Vice President and Chief Academic Officer Francis Battisti. “Both accounting and nutrition are vibrant fields that can lead to a range of fascinating careers.”

Dr. Battisti also has the distinction of being a graduate of both schools: He earned his associate’s from SUNY Broome, and went on to earn his Ph.D. from Marywood.

SUNY Broome has multiple articulation agreements with Marywood, offering students the opportunity to complete bachelor’s degrees in areas including art therapy, photography, graphic design and nursing. In addition to SUNY Broome, Marywood partners with two-year colleges throughout northeastern Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.

“Marywood University is one of the best places to prepare for a career in the health professions,” said Sr. Mary Persico, IHM, Ed.D., president of Marywood University. “We are proud of our partnership with SUNY Broome and the opportunities that our collaborative articulation agreements afford to students,” she continued.
