Capitol Technology University is pleased to announce the expansion of an existing agreement with Washington Adventist University (WAU). The original partnership was established in the shared interest of expanding 21st century career-relevant learning opportunities to the students of both universities that build on respective institutional strengths. Students in programs of computer and data science, health care administration, cyberpsychology, cyber analytics, and business analytics will now find accelerated degree completion options available which include masters and doctoral degrees.
Under the expanded articulation agreement, WAU and Capitol Tech students will be able to transfer credits and courses and add specific concentrations and specializations to the MBA, BS in Information Systems, and BS in Computer Science degrees, as well as apply for transfer scholarship opportunities. This agreement also facilitates the transfer of specific WAU master’s degree recipients with a GPA of 3.0 or greater into PhD programs at Capitol Tech. Furthermore, the partnership will establish a streamlined pathway for WAU students to earn technical experience and certificates offered by Capitol Tech, while Capitol Tech students can explore the healthcare concentrations offered by WAU.
WAU is a private university accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) that offers a dynamic blend of professional and liberal arts undergraduate and graduate programs in science, mathematics, health, business and management, social sciences, and many others. Their vision is to produce graduates who bring competence and moral leadership to their communities. Capitol Tech is also a private university accredited by MSCHE, and the only independent college in Maryland dedicated to offering STEM-focused programs in cyber and information security, computer and data science, engineering, intelligence and global security, management of technology, occupational safety and health, and many others. Their mission is to educate individuals for professional opportunities in engineering, computer and information sciences, and business, as well as provide relevant learning experiences that lead to success in the evolving global community.
President of Capitol Tech Bradford Sims and President of WAU Weymouth Spence both expressed their excitement for this partnership and the expansion of benefits to their students. “The shared goals of both Capitol Tech and WAU will be furthered through the exchange of ideas, faculty and staff, and resources made possible through this agreement,” stated President Sims. “It is anticipated that this partnership will give our students career pathway options that were not available to them before,” stated President Spence.
