College of Southern Idaho and LC State Sign Co-Enrollment Agreement
Release Date: 2/11/21
College of Southern Idaho students who want to continue their education will now have a smoother transition to Lewis Clark State College thanks to a memorandum of understanding between the two institutions.
Through the co-admission and co-enrollment agreement, students will be able to work toward a degree at Lewis-Clark State College and track their progress while attending CSI. The collaborative move by the two institutions reduces barriers to students transferring between the institutions.
“We are excited to be working with CSI on co-admission/co-enrollment,” LC State President Pemberton said. “This partnership education model will increase student awareness, interest, and access, making next-level degree pursuit virtually seamless.”
LC State has had a presence on the CSI campus for years, and the institutions have always worked to ensure that students were able to transfer easily. In Fall 2020, eight CSI students transferred to Lewis-Clark State, and four more attended that were past CSI students. The new agreement is designed to streamline the process even further and to offer expanded opportunities from both institutions.
The agreement also helps ensure that comprehensive support systems are in place for students wishing to transfer to Lewis-Clark State College to receive their bachelor's degree.
“I appreciate the collaboration with the administration and faculty at Lewis Clark State College to make this partnership a reality. Like the leadership of LCSC, the CSI leadership team is interested in assuring a seamless and cooperative enrollment experience for Idahoans,” said President Dean L. Fisher.
