MCCB, IHL agreement expands degree attainment options for MSU students

MSU News - 7 hours 33 min ago

Contact: Sasha Steinberg

STARKVILLE, Miss.— Students who transfer from a Mississippi community or junior college now have the opportunity to complete their associate’s degree while enrolled at Mississippi State University, thanks to an agreement between the state’s Community College Board and Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.

The Reverse Transfer Credit Agreement allows students to transfer credits earned at MSU or another institution of higher learning to their two-year college to complete requirements for an associate’s degree without interrupting matriculation toward a baccalaureate degree.

After admission to an IHL university, transfer students earning at least 16 college credit hours from a single MCCB community or junior college will be notified after completing 64 hours that they may be eligible for the associate’s degree.  

University Registrar John R. Dickerson said eligible students will be required to log in to their myState account, click the “Banner” tab, select “Community College Reverse Transfer” under the “Academic Records” tab, and follow on-screen instructions to complete the process.

Once the student’s request has been received, the MSU Registrar’s Office will send the student’s transcript to the two-year college registrar’s office. That college will then perform the degree audit and determine whether requirements for the associate’s degree have been satisfied.

For more information about the reverse transfer program, contact the MSU Registrar’s Office at 662-325-2022.

Among the works Douglas N. Dow will discuss during his Thursday [Oct. 15] presentation is Bernardino Poccetti’s The Funeral of Alberto Avogadro from Cabinet des Dessins, Louvre.

STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State’s College of Architecture, Art and Design is welcoming a Kansas art historian and educator for a Thursday [Oct. 15] presentation in the Griffis Hall fourth-floor Forum Room.

Free to all, Douglas N. Dow’s 8 a.m. talk is titled “Never adequately praised: Bernardino Poccetti’s Lost Paintings at Santa Maria del Carmine, Florence.”

Dow, who holds master’s and doctoral degrees in art history from Pennsylvania State University, is an associate professor of art history at Kansas State University. In addition to teaching introductory art history courses and upper-level courses on Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art, he also had led several summer study-abroad programs in Italy.

Also a University of Maine art history and English graduate, Dow’s research interests focus on issues of collective patronage, the production and consumption of art by non-elites, and the professional and social networks of artists and patrons in late 16th century Italy.

His interest in the intersection of digital technologies, popular culture, and the history of Renaissance art led to an article on the presence of anachronistic architectural monuments in the video game, “Assassin’s Creed II.”

Along with published journal articles, Dow is the author of a book, “Apostolic Iconography and Florentine Confraternities in the Age of Reform” (Ashgate 2014).

For more information about his program and campus visit, contact Angi Bourgeois, associate professor and interim art department head, at 662-325-2970 or
