"Yonkers Times" featured Pace University in "Pace & WCC Announce New Transfer Agreement"

Westchester Community College and Pace University have signed a new transfer agreement allowing students who complete their studies at WCC to matriculate into Pace with junior standing. The new agreement covers students in 12 WCC majors.

Westchester Community College students who graduate from those programs with an associate of arts of sciences degree and a minimum grade-point average of 2.5 will be guaranteed acceptance to Pace. All students graduating from WCC’s A.A. or A.S. programs will have their general education/core requirements waived if they transfer to Pace. For these students, all courses that receive a passing grade at WCC will count toward degree completion at Pace.

For the transfer students, a maximum of 68 credits will be applied toward the completion of the relevant Pace bachelor’s degree programs.

For Nursing students in particular, those graduating with an associate of applied science degree from WCC are eligible to enroll in the Pace registered nurse bachelor of science online degree program. Those with a grade-point average of 2.75 or better will be guaranteed admission with junior standing. All nursing students graduating from WCC will have their lower-level general education/core requirements waived if they transfer to Pace. Nursing students transferring to Pace will receive a discounted tuition rate.

In addition, Pace will offer scholarships to select transfer students.

“The college is deeply committed to helping our students succeed,” said Belinda Miles, president of WCC. “This includes strengthening our transfer pathways and forging new agreements with four-year institutions. Such agreements truly help our students move on toward real opportunities in the classroom and the workplace as they transition from graduation here to bachelor’s degrees at Pace and subsequent careers in their chosen fields. As we seek to simplify and redesign the student experience, this agreement makes it easier for our students to move on in their journeys toward success.”

“I’m thrilled to deepen Pace University’s partnership with Westchester Community College through this innovative agreement,” added Pace President Marvin Krislov. “Westchester Community College is our county neighbor and our partner in the mission to open doors and provide opportunities for our students. This partnership helps our future graduates strengthen their skills to compete in an ever-changing global economy.” Pace Provost Vanya Quiñones said the agreement with WCC will be a transformative experience for students and create a clear pathway for success. “Providing students with opportunities to fulfill their potential is not only a core philosophy at Pace, it’s also part of our academic DNA,” said Quinones

"Yonkers Times" featured Pace graduate Gabriella Rubin in "Former Pace Women's B-Ball Star to Play Overseas"

Former Pace University women’s basketball player Gabriella Rubin has signed on to continue her career with Maccabi Ra’anana of Israel’s National League (Liga Leumit).

“I am blessed to be given the opportunity to play the game that I love for another year while living in another country,” she said.

“We are very happy and proud of Gabby – this is a tremendous opportunity for her,” said Pace Women’s Basketball Head Coach Carrie Seymour. “Gabby is a great example of hard work paying off. She had to battle back from a couple of injuries before ending her career on a high note. She will be a great addition to her club.”

Rubin, who graduated in May with a degree in public accounting, enters the next phase of her basketball career after completing a stellar four seasons in Pleasantville. The Staten Island native racked up more than 900 points and 300 rebounds in 82 career games. She also finished seventh on the Setters’ all-time three-pointers’ list with 123 during her career.

Rubin was all over the floor for Pace, putting together averages of 11.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals, while helping the Setters to two-straight NE10 Tournament bids over the last two seasons. In 2015, she was selected as the Eastern College Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year after averaging 11.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.4 steals per game during her freshman year.

Ra’anana is a city in the Central District of Israel, about 23 kilometers outside of Tel Aviv. Maccabi Ra’anana will begin its season in early October. For more information regarding Pace University athletics, log on to www.PaceUAthletics.com.
