Cuesta College will host Sierra Nevada College’s bachelor’s degree program starting Fall 2019. Cuesta College graduates can pursue bachelor’s degrees* in Psychology, Global Business Management, Entrepreneurship, Accounting, or General Studies through traditional classroom instruction on Cuesta’s San Luis Obispo campus.
“It is fantastic to welcome Sierra Nevada College to the Cuesta College SLO campus,” says Dr. Jill Stearns, Cuesta College Superintendent / President. “Our partnership launches tremendous opportunity for Cuesta College graduates, and local associate degree holders, who are ready to take the next step on their educational journey.”
Economic changes in the U.S. have created a surge of “non-traditional” students (NPR, 2016). Almost half of those enrolled in higher education in 2016 were such students. Many students today have intricate ties to their communities, making a transfer to another institution difficult if not out of reach entirely. Adding to this is the impacted state of the California State University and University of California systems.
