Anoka Technical College and Bemidji State University entered into a new articulation agreement on Tuesday, Oct. 10, to offer a path in 15 associate degree programs to a four-year degree.

Students at Anoka Tech who complete an Associate of Science Degree may now transfer into one of three related four-year degree programs offered through Bemidji State University, with options online and on campus.

President of Bemidji State University Faith Hensrud, Ed.D., and President of Anoka Technical College Kent Hanson, Ph.D., signed the articulation during a ceremony held Tuesday afternoon on Anoka Tech’s campus. Administrators, faculty and staff from both colleges were in attendance.

“This is tremendous,” said Hensrud. “It is really exciting for us to share some of these highly technical degrees with students of highly technical programs.”

The programs are offered either online or on campus.
