CINCINNATI, June 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Institute & University invites all community college graduates to transfer to Union and earn up to a $3,000 scholarship.
"UI&U has formed a partnership with over 20 community colleges to provide a seamless and cost-effective pathway from an associate degree to a bachelor's degree," said Sonya M. Fultz, UI&U Senior Director for Enrollment and Academic Partnerships and former chair of the Southwestern Council for Higher Education (SOCHE) Articulation and Transfer Committee.
Union is one of only 78 colleges and universities across the country named to Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society's 2019 Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the dynamic pathways Union has created to support transfer students.
Clark State is the latest community college to form a partnership with Union.
"Clark State is excited to partner with the Union Institute & University," said Amy Sues, Dean of Institutional Effectiveness, Planning, Assessment, and Accreditation at Clark State. "Union offers a variety of majors' online making classes convenient to our students."
Another partner is Ivy Tech.
Dr. Sue Ellspermann, President of Ivy Tech Community College, also welcomes the collaboration. "We empower our students to achieve their career goals. This is another opportunity to fulfill those aspirations."
Transfer agreement partnerships are another example of Union's commitment to meet students where they are in their educational career. UI&U is rapidly expanding its transfer partnerships with community colleges.
"New partnership agreements include Cuyahoga Community College, Southern State, Cincinnati State, Gateway Community and Technical College, and others that will be signed in the next few weeks," said Fultz.
What is the earnings potential between an associate and a bachelor degree?
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) says it best. "In terms of dollars, education makes sense. Median weekly earnings in 2017 for those with the highest levels of educational attainment—doctoral and professional degrees—were more than triple those with the lowest level, less than a high school diploma. And workers with at least a bachelor's degree earned more than the $907 median weekly earnings for all workers." (Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)
