Teamwork was key to establishing this agreement.

"Our two faculties and staffs will work together to ensure no obstacles stand in the way of Maricopa students who wish to transfer into a Westminster four-year liberal arts program," said George Wolf, Vice President and Dean of Enrollment Services. "We want a seamless transfer process so no student has to repeat competencies already achieved or face unnecessary paperwork in the transfer process."

Maricopa is one of the largest community college districts in the country comprised of ten community colleges.
