New pathway agreement between St. Lawrence College and Fleming College

2017-08-29

A new educational pathway will benefit students and graduates from Fleming College’s Fish and Wildlife Technician program and St. Lawrence College’s Veterinary Technology program. Fleming College and St. Lawrence College (SLC) recently signed a new bilateral articulation agreement that will allow qualified students and graduates from each institution to transfer credit and gain advanced standing.

“We are grateful for this partnership with Fleming College. This articulation agreement will benefit St. Lawrence College Veterinary Technology graduates by granting them the opportunity to earn a second college credential in only two academic semesters. By taking advantage of this new educational pathway, our Veterinary Technology graduates can diversify their knowledge and skill set, thereby expanding their career opportunities,” said Robin Hicks, Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science at St. Lawrence College.”

Qualified students and graduates from Fleming’s Fish and Wildlife Technician program will receive transfer credits equivalent to seven courses in St. Lawrence College’s Veterinary Technology program. SLC’s Veterinary Technology program is a three-year advanced diploma program offered on SLC’s Kingston campus. The program produces graduates with excellent scientific training as well as the practical laboratory and veterinary technical skills needed in today’s workplace.

Qualified students and graduates from St. Lawrence College’s Veterinary Technology program will receive transfer credits equivalent to nine courses in Fleming’s Fish and Wildlife Technician program, allowing them to enter directly into the program’s second year. Fleming College’s Fish and Wildlife Technician program is a two-year (four semesters) diploma program that features an optional co-operative education experience. It leads graduates into a rewarding career, combining their love of the outdoors and keen interest in fish and wildlife, with a commitment to responsible resource management.

“I’m excited about this agreement, which formalizes an on-going relationship between our Fish and Wildlife program and St. Lawrence College’s Vet Tech program,” said Brett Goodwin, Dean of Fleming’s School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences. “This agreement will provide a unique opportunity for students to gain training in both the fish and wildlife and vet tech fields, which prepares them to be able to provide very specific services such as wildlife immobilizations.”

Each year, Fleming College will reserve two seats in the Fish and Wildlife Technician program for St. Lawrence College Veterinary Technology graduates. Both seats for this fall are already filled with two Veterinary Technology graduates from SLC enrolled in the Fish and Wildlife Technician program at Fleming.
