New cooperative paves way to more degree paths for Jefferson College Students

(Jefferson County) Students in the Jefferson College, East Central College, and Mineral Area College districts now have access to more degree options without additional costs.

Jefferson College spokesman Roger Barrentine says that’s thanks to a new “Beyond Boundaries” partnership which allows for students in those neighboring districts to work toward a degree in select programs at in-district tuition costs.

Barrentine goes over some of the programs Jefferson College will offer and some programs current students can select from the two other colleges.

Students at East Central College will benefit from Beyond Boundaries by paying in-district tuition for law enforcement programs at both MAC and Jefferson College, as well as physical therapist assistant and veterinary technology programs at Jefferson College.

The agreement, signed during Community College Month, is a partnership through the Missouri Community College Association (MCCA).

Beyond Boundaries will go into effect this fall.
