SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Southern Maine Community College and the University of New England have created a partnership that allows students to transfer their credits.

Leaders from both institutions announced Monday that they'd signed 16 transfer agreements ensuring students can transfer seamlessly from Southern Maine Community College programs to programs at the University of New England.

SMCC President Ron Canto called it a "milestone partnership that ensures a smooth transition from community college to university." All told, the transfer agreements cover 10 academic programs at SMCC and 11 at UNE.

Both schools are growing. Southern Maine has campuses in South Portland and Brunswick, as well as satellite campuses. The University of New England is a private college with its main campus in Biddeford.
