“One of the unique selling points of these articulation agreements is that an education abroad is actually more affordable than many students might expect.”
the students who were interested were actually in art and design. “We are flexible enough that we can change the articulation agreement to reflect student need. They develop over time,” Mushat says. One of the unique selling points of these articulation agreements is that an education abroad is actually more affordable than many students might expect, especially as institutions like Middlesex are eligible for U.S. student and Sallie Mae loans. Mushat also points out that the demographics of U.S. community colleges are changing, with more younger, undergraduate students who would traditionally attend fouryear institutions beginning their educations at community colleges. “This is a market definitely worth keeping an eye on,” he says. Middlesex has just signed an articulation agreement with the Maricopa County Community College District in Phoenix, Arizona. Their relationship with Maricopa grew out of contact between a faculty member and the British Council. James Gordon Patterson, a business professor at Paradise Valley Community College, was commissioned to do a survey for the British Council, and he realized they were looking for partners for their universities. They eventually put him in touch with a representative of Middlesex, who was also an alumna of the University of Arizona. Together they developed the agreement and have plans to hold a joint summer school in the future.

Patterson reiterates Mushat’s sentiment that this type of articulation agreement might be increasingly attractive to the changing demographic at community colleges: “Our primary market I feel is the student who might be thinking of a variety of schools to transfer to including out of state. And many of our students seek out international opportunities. This is a less threatening place to go since English is the language and it isn’t that far. But it is foreign.” “Given the huge increase in tuition at the state universities, we now get students who might have ordinarily gone straight to the university from high school. Plus, the tuition and fees at Middlesex compares favorably with the tuition at our state universities.” IE
