1. This guide represents an Articulation (partnership) Agreement between Lansing
   Community College (LCC) and Columbia Southern University (CSU). LCC courses 
   applicable to the criminal justice degree are listed in the articulation link 
   above. The agreement facilitates the transfer of LCC credits toward the 
   completion of a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice at CSU.  This guide
   includes courses from the following LCC curriculum guides, allowing students 
   to simultaneously earn an Associate Degree while preparing to transfer to 
   Columbia Southern University:

   Criminal Justice, Corrections (AAS-1209); 
   Criminal Justice, Juvenile Specialization (AAS-1475);

   This agreement is in effect for a maximum of five (5) years - January 2015, 
   at which time it will be reviewed by both institutions.
2. CSU will accept a maximum of 84 transferable LCC credit hours.  
3. CSU is an undergraduate and graduate level institution that is accredited by
   the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).  As an accredited, 
   degree-granting member of the DETC, CSU is also an institutional member of 
   the Council of Higher Education Accreditation. 
4. If an LCC student changes their major when entering CSU, an academic advisor
   from CSU will work directly with the incoming student.  CSU will endeavor to
   maximize credit transfer, but program changes will be evaluated on a case by 
   case basis.
5. Students seeking an LCC associate degree must fulfill specific graduation
   requirements. See the LCC Catalog for details.
