April 16, 2018 - 3:00 PM

KAMLOOPS - Thompson Rivers University announced two new transfer partner agreements with an American college today.

The College of Western Idaho (CWI), is a community college in Nampa, Idaho that signed the agreement with TRU announced today, Apr. 16, 2018.

The agreement allows graduates of CWI’s associate of arts and associate of sciences programs to receive transfer credit into TRU’s bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degree programs.

That means CWI students can now transfer credits from a number of arts and science programs. Those listed in a media release include: anthropology, liberal arts, general business, communication, criminal justice, English, geography, history, political science, psychology, sociology, Spanish, chemistry, biology and geology.

Kamloops’ local university is the College of Western Idaho’s first Canadian partner institution according to Baihua Chadwick, an official from TRU.

David Shellberg from CWI anticipates the agreement will be valuable for students by providing an opportunity to receive education in an international setting.
