The presidents of Utica College and Mohawk Valley Community College will sign a specialized transfer articulation agreement on Friday, Jan. 20, at 1:30 p.m. The signing will take place in the Economic Crime, Justice Studies and Cybersecurity building at Utica College.

The agreement is intended to encourage the transfer of qualified students from MVCC to UC. MVCC students who complete their Associates Degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher will be guaranteed acceptance into UC’s cybersecurity program.

Utica College’s cybersecurity program has been designated by the Defense Cybercrime Center as a National Center of Excellence in Digital Forensic Education. The program has also been designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance and Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department for Homeland Security (DHS). 

“The United States is more dependent on cyber technologies than any other country in the world,” said Joseph Giordano, professor of practice and chair of cyber programs at UC. “Our goal is to funnel the most educated, bright individuals into the field to protect our information resources.”
