Cambrian and Algoma Present Pathways to Degree Completion

(SUDBURY, ON – August 31, 2016): Students, prospective students, and recent graduates of Cambrian College will reap rewards from a range of pathways to Algoma University degree programs, thanks to a new partnership between the two Northern Ontario institutions.

On August 31, the Presidents of Algoma and Cambrian signed a general agreement that provides qualified Cambrian students and graduates of certificate, diploma, and advanced diploma programs with rewarding routes to Bachelor’s degrees from Algoma University.

The broad agreement streamlines pathways to Algoma’s Bachelor of Arts or Science degrees, as well as its Bachelor degrees in Business Administration, Computer Science, Fine Arts, Music, and Social Work.

Benefits to Cambrian students and graduates include:

  • Guaranteed admission, transfer credit recognition, and valuable scholarships from Algoma University based on their completion of a Cambrian diploma or certificate program and academic merit
  • Enhanced academic advising and planning through their postsecondary studies
  • Shorter and more cost-effective routes to combining college and university credentials

“Our new pathways agreement with Cambrian College makes getting a university degree more accessible for Northern Ontario students,” said Dr. Craig Chamberlin, President of Algoma University. “We are committed to working in a collaborative way with our Northern Ontario education partners and providing our resources to help students succeed. We are thankful for being able to work with such a good partner as Cambrian College, who shares our belief in student-centred learning.”

“We are pleased to establish this agreement with Algoma University that will benefit our students and graduates across a variety of disciplines,” said Bill Best, Cambrian College President. “Our partnership maximizes credit transfer, streamlines admission, and offers greater choice for students who wish to pursue college and university credentials in Northern Ontario.”
