A cross-border education linkage between Sault College in Ontario and Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. is offering more opportunities for students. The two post-secondary institutions signed four agreements in April linking the schools' computer studies programs through their already-established international division.
The pacts allows students to earn a Sault College computer studies diploma, plus a Lake State bachelor of science in computer networking degree in four to five years.
The tie between the schools also offers diploma-degree opportunities in criminal justice and teacher education, allowing students to obtain credentials to become elementary and high school teachers in Ontario and Michigan.
"The International University-College Division was initiated to create more opportunities for students on both sides of the border," said Sault College president Gerry McGuire in a news release. "These newest agreements expand options for students and are especially timely given the concerns many students and their parents have about the double-cohort."
