MOBILE, Ala. – An articulation agreement between University of Mobile and Coastal Alabama Community college will ensure community college students a seamless transfer process into UM to complete their bachelor’s degrees.

Dr. Timothy Smith, president of University of Mobile, and Dr. Gary Branch, president of Coastal Alabama Community College, recently signed the agreement.

The plan was specifically designed for students pursuing careers in education or nursing. However, through consultation with University of Mobile staff, students from any area of study can benefit from the agreement.

Joe Hudson and Danny Chancey, two UM staff members from the Office for Academic Partnerships, aid potential transfer students by reviewing transcripts to recommend courses needed for a successful transition to University of Mobile. From their first semester at Coastal Alabama, students can map out their path toward a bachelor’s degree in any field.

Hudson and Chancey are available to students in the University of Mobile office on the Bay Minette campus of Coastal Alabama Community College; it is located in 104-A Wallace Administration Building, and is open Wednesdays from  9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Thursday from 9 a.m. until noon.
