2014-02-19

St. Lawrence College and the University of Ottawa have formed a partnership that will create opportunities for Music & Digital Media students at the College wishing to further their post-secondary education in the music field.

St. Lawrence College and the University of Ottawa reached a Memorandum of Understanding and will collaborate to facilitate the continued education in the field of music for students. The University of Ottawa recognizes that the College’s students are well prepared to meet the admission requirements of the following University of Ottawa degrees: Honours Bachelor of Arts with Specialization in Music; Bachelor of Arts with Major in Music; and Honours Bachelor with Major in Music. Any St. Lawrence College graduate from the Music & Digital Media program who achieved a minimum 75 per cent final grade point average can apply for advanced standing. The University of Ottawa will grant 45 credits of advanced standing to be applied to one of the aforementioned Honours degree programs.  In addition to the 45 credits of advanced standing granted, graduates must complete 75 credits for a total of 120 credits.

 “The College is proud to announce this credit transfer opportunity for current and future students to pursue additional post-secondary education with the University of Ottawa.  Our students’ success is of the utmost importance to us and this agreement gives our students the freedom and ability to continue their education and further develop their skills in the music field,” said Don Young, Dean of Faculty of Applied Science at St. Lawrence College.

 “The University of Ottawa is very pleased about this first collaboration with St. Lawrence College that will improve student mobility in the field of Music. We hope this articulation agreement will pave the way to further partnerships between our two institutions,” said  Johanne Bourdages, Associate Vice-President, Academic Programs.

To celebrate this collaboration, a University of Ottawa delegation will visit St. Lawrence College’s Kingston campus, where the Music & Digital Media program is delivered, on Wednesday, February 19th at 11:30am.
