Delta College teams up to help students get degrees in Stockton


SOME TELL US THIS PROGRAM WILL
REALLY HELP.>>I DON’T HAVE FAMILY TO LEAN
ON. IT IS UP TO ME TO EARN MY MONEY. MELINDA: ANDY BARTLETT SAYS A
COMMUTE OF TWO HOURS PER DAY
WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE, MAKING A
FOUR-YEAR DEGREE IMPOSSIBLE.>>I HAVE BEEN WONDERING IF I
NEED TO TAKE TIME OFF SCHOOL,
BECAUSE I CAN’T LEAVE STOCKTON. I DON’T REALLY HAVE THE MEANS. MELIND NOW THE UNIVERSITY OF
STANISLAUS AND DELTA COLLEGE
WANTS TO CHANGE THAT. TODAY THE CAMPUSES ANNOUNCED A
PARTNERSHIP, ALLOWING STUDENTS
TO GET A BACHELORS DEGREE
WITHOUT LEAVING STOCKTON.>>WE DID SOMETHING THAT IS BOTH
HISTORICAL AND GROUNDBREAKING AT
THE SAME TIME. MELINDA: DELTA STUDENTS MEETING
REQUIRED GRADES WOULD BE
GUARANTEED ENROLLMENT IN COURSES
AT STANISLAUS STATE’S STOCKTON
CENTER.>>I THINK IT’S A GREAT
OPPORTUNITY, ESPECIALLY FOR
STUDENTS THAT HAVE TO WORK, OR
HAVE FAMILIES.>>THIS IS HUGE FOR OUR
STUDENTS, BECAUSE SO MANY OF
THEM HAVE FAMILIES, CHILDREN,
WORK FULL TIME. GOING AN HOUR AWAY, EITHER WAY,
EITHER TO SAC STATE OR
STANISLAUS IS JUST ABOUT
IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM. MELINDA: THE MAJORS OFFERED WILL
BE BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION,
COMMUNICATION STUDIES,
PSYCHOLOGY AND LIBERAL STUDIES.>>MY COUSIN, SHE’S ACTUALLY
DOING IT. SHE JUST TRANSFERRED. IT WORKS REALLY GOOD. SHE WAS SO EXCITED, HEARING
ABOUT IT, BECAUSE SHE HAS THREE
KIDS, SO NOW SHE HAS TO STAY IN
STOCKTON. SHE CAN NOW SAY IN STOCKTON, AND
NOT DRIVE ONE HOUR AWAY. MELINDA: TO QUALIFY, DELTA
STUDENTS MUST GET THEIR
ASSOCIATES DEGREE AND EARN AT
LEAST A 2.0. THERE WILL BE A PART-TIME
COUNSELOR ASSIGNED TO DR. COLLEGE IN STOCKTON FOR STUDENTS
IN THE PROGRAM TO REACH THEIR
GOAL IN TWO YEARS.>>THEY WILL SEE, IF I DO THIS,
I CAN DO THIS IN TWO YEARS.
