Mount Union paves the way for transfer graduate students
ALLIANCE – Mount Union University has updated its student transfer policy, helping associate degree holders complete their bachelor’s degree faster than ever before.
The new policy states that those transferring to Mount Union and who have already obtained an associate’s degree of any kind from a regionally accredited institution have the opportunity to bypass the first two years of general education. of the program (core integration) and the written and oral communication (WOC) Portfolio at the University.
Credits that meet other requirements, but not those of the Integrative Core, can still be accepted as elective credit.
In a press release, Mount Union said the move allows eligible incoming students to avoid additional or redundant coursework from their associate degrees and focus on courses in their primary or secondary fields of study.
It also means that these students can get their bachelor’s degree faster, saving time and money on their career path.
“Associate degrees will no longer be lost in the transfer process,” said Marci Muckleroy, director of transfer and readmission at Mount Union. “This policy reflects Mount Union’s commitment to creating pathways that make earning a four-year degree affordable and achievable. This strategy will provide an exceptional educational experience triggering the start of meaningful partnerships with our local community colleges and inspiring students to continue their education.
