RUTLAND - College of St. Joseph (CSJ) and Stafford Technical Center have entered into an articulation agreement, whereby college credits are awarded for academic work students successfully complete at Stafford in Public Safety Services.

"This agreement builds on our already strong connection to Stafford and further strengthens our partnership," CSJ President Richard Lloyd said.

The agreement allows high school students enrolled in the Public Safety Program at Stafford to take up to 30 (one year of full-time status) credits of college coursework that can be transferred to College of St. Joseph should they attend as a full-time student in pursuing an associate degree or bachelor degree in criminal justice. This agreement reduces the amount of time to complete an associate or bachelor degree and the cost to students and families.

A ceremony was expected to take place at 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 3 in the Clementwood Mansion on the CSJ campus, where the agreement would be signed by Lloyd and Stafford Technical Center Director Lyle Jepson.

"The relationship between Stafford Technical Center and the College of St. Joseph is an excellent model of public and private school collaboration. Stafford Technical Center greatly appreciates the support provided by the CSJ administration and faculty," Jepson said.
