Moraine Valley Community College has signed an articulation agreement with Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) for men. The agreement allows students to have a smooth transfer to the institution after completing their associate degree from Moraine Valley.

Morehouse College is a member of the Atlanta University Center Consortium, which includes Spelman College, the all-female institution near Morehouse College, and Clark Atlanta University. This consortium allows students the option of enrolling in undergraduate academic courses offered by any of the consortium’s schools.

This marks the second articulation agreement Moraine Valley has signed with an HBCU. The first was signed in August with Voorhees University in Denmark, South Carolina.

Moraine Valley continues to add to its growing list of agreements with HBCUs and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI). Prior to the Morehouse College agreement, Moraine Valley had agreements with: Chicago State University, Elmhurst University, The Chicago School (formerly The Chicago School of Professional Psychology), Roosevelt University, Saint Xavier University, University of Illinois Chicago and Voorhees University.

“Having transfer agreements with HSIs and HBCUs helps bring awareness to our students about the opportunities these institutions can offer and the unique benefits they can provide,” said Tina Carney-Simon, transfer coordinator.

Each agreement offers specific benefits to Moraine Valley students such as guaranteed admission, reduced tuition, dual admission and acceptance into honors programs based on criteria set by each institution. Students can learn about the articulation agreements at

“I am proud we are expanding the number of agreements we have with HBCUs and Hispanic-Serving Institutions,” said Dr. Pamela J. Haney, president of Moraine Valley. “As our students consider which colleges and universities they would like to transfer to after graduating from Moraine Valley, we want to make their transition as seamless as possible through articulation agreements with a wide range of institutions.”
