Delaware Technical Community College and Widener University Delaware Law School have entered an agreement that will give Delaware Technical students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Legal Studies and Paralegal Certificate.
Under the agreement, students who have completed the associate degree with a GPA of 2.0 or higher will automatically be accepted into the baccalaureate program at Widener University and will receive 57 transfer credits towards graduation requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Legal Studies.
As a result, the students will only have to earn 63 credits at Delaware Law School to earn the bachelor’s. Students intending to transfer must complete the admissions application for Widener University following the third semester of their associate degree program. Students completing a total of 24 paralegal credits will also receive a Certificate in Paralegal Studies.
According to Delaware Tech President Mark T. Brainard, who is a graduate of both institutions, “This agreement provides a valuable pipeline for our students and allows them to leverage the SEED Scholarship program on their journey toward a bachelor’s degree.”
“The Delaware Law School is delighted to embark on this new partnership with Delaware Tech. This collaboration will strengthen both institutions and contribute to educational opportunities in Delaware,” said Delaware Law School Dean Rodney A. Smolla.
