Joint Educational Agreements

The Comprehensive Agreement Regarding the Expansion of Education Resources (CAREER)

Lewis and Clark is participating in the Comprehensive Agreement Regarding Expansion of Educational Resources (CAREER) whereby L&C students may attend any of the following institutions at the receiving college’s in-district tuition and fees rates. CAREER participation is limited to programs of study (not individual courses) not offered at L&C. Students who wish to enroll in a program at L&C that is not available in their home district listed below should request a letter from that district designating them as participants in an approved program. Upon receipt of that letter, L&C will then be able to charge them in-district tuition and fees. Residents of the L&C District may take advantage of this Agreement by requesting a letter of approval from the Office of the Vice President of Enrollment Services, Baldwin 2423.

Dual Admission Agreements

Lewis and Clark has developed several dual admissions agreements to give L&C students the opportunity to be admitted to baccalaureate-degree granting colleges and universities while enrolled full-time at L&C. The goal of these agreements is to create a seamless and successful transition from L&C to another institution. Participants have access to both L&C and partnering institutions’ advising and financial aid services, and both L&C and the partnering institutions’ courses. While studying primarily at L&C, dual admission students may enroll in one course per semester at the partner institution.

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and Lewis and Clark have a Dual Admission/Partnership Agreement that allows L&C students to apply by the end of their second semester of full-time attendance at L&C for dual admission at SIUE. Students are eligible for advising and financial aid services at both SIUE and L&C. For more information call the Director of Enrollment and Advising, 618-468-5200.

Fontbonne University and Lewis and Clark have a Dual Admission Agreement that allows students to apply within the first 30 credit hours at L&C.  Students are eligible for advising and financial services at both Fontbonne and L&C.

For more information contact an advisor at 618-468-2220.

Summary of Agreements with Four-Year Institutions

Lewis and Clark has developed an array of agreements with four-year colleges and universities to expedite transfer to specific programs.  Dual admission and articulation agreements with selected universities and specific baccalaureate degree programs provide students the opportunity to obtain baccalaureate degrees in technical and other specific fields. Under the 2+2 articulation agreements, L&C graduates who have earned Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees in specific occupational programs or A.A. or A.S. degrees with specific course work can transfer to the partnering four-year institution, usually with junior standing.
