Solano Community College’s first students to earn bachelor of art degrees through a new partnership with a local university crossed the proverbial graduation stage this week.
Susan Amil and Sharlice Wright graduated with bachelor’s degrees in Liberal Arts through the college’s two-year partnership with Sonoma State University.
The pair were recognized for their achievements at Wednesday’s commencement ceremony on Solano College’s Fairfield campus.
The partnership, which now includes 25 students, allows community college students to obtain a liberal arts degree while taking classes at Solano College’s Vallejo campus.
Students can take a variety of social sciences, humanities and natural sciences taught by Sonoma State faculty but in classrooms on the Vallejo campus.
