There are some new options for full-time students in the Hudson Valley.
Today, Vassar College and Dutchess Community College announced an agreement that allows full-time students from one college to take up to two courses, per year, tuition free, at the other.
According to a press release, Vassar President Elizabeth Bradley says the agreement became reality after months of discussions with DCC President Pamela Edington.
"Vassar College and DCC have unique capabilities that can benefit the other," Bradley said. "It only makes sense that we would collaborate to help expand the educational possibilities on both campuses."
"Partnerships are key to achieving shared goals," said Edington. "By leveraging the resources of both Vassar College and DCC, we will be able to provide enhanced opportunities for students of both institutions."
Students have the freedom to choose which courses they take at the other institution, effective immediately.
