Carl Sandburg College signs partnership with UIS

Carl Sandburg College students pursuing a career in accounting and business administration now have an opportunity to transfer seamlessly to the University of Illinois Springfield-Peoria Center after graduating with an associate degree.

The partnership was made official Monday as CSC president Lori Sundberg and UIS Dean of the College of Business and Management Ronald McNeil signed the agreement simultaneously.

Under the agreement, students who graduate CSC with an associate degree are eligible to utilize the partnership and complete their bachelor’s degree in accounting or business administration in just two more years.

“Education is essential today,” McNeil said. “It’s the only way any student, or anybody, can survive, and what you do is great ... because you have support mechanisms that are great for students.”
