1. This guide represents an Articulation (partnership) Agreement between Lansing
   Community College (LCC) and Columbia Southern University (CSU). LCC courses 
   applicable to the fire science 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 Fire Science. This guide includes courses
   from LCC curriculum guide 0123 - Fire Science Technology, allowing students to
   simultaneously earn an Associate in Applied Science degree while preparing to
   transfer to Columbia Southern University.  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.
