University College Announces New Partnerships With Community Colleges
Nebraska Wesleyan’s University College has recently announced new partnerships with three community colleges that will expand opportunities for transfer students who want to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Nebraska Wesleyan and Southeast Community College, Metro Community College, and Iowa Western Community College have entered partnerships that will allow students from each of the three community colleges to receive a $1,000 scholarship. The Bridge Transfer Scholarship will assist students who wish to transfer to NWU and seek a bachelor’s degree.
Transfer students can enroll in Nebraska Wesleyan’s Advantage Program or its College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
In addition to the Bridge Transfer Scholarship, Nebraska Wesleyan has established two full-tuition scholarships for transfer students to use toward NWU’s bachelor of business administration program in Omaha. The Archway Scholarship provides full tuition for one qualified graduate from Metropolitan Community College to attend NWU while the Advantage Scholarship covers full tuition for a qualified graduate of Iowa Western Community College to attend. The first of these scholarships were awarded last spring. Robyn Stover (MCC graduate) of Elkhorn and Jenifer Skokan (IWCC graduate) of Council Bluffs, Iowa, were each awarded full-tuition scholarships and are now enrolled in the business program.
In other University College news, a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education will pay full tuition at NWU’s Omaha location for 60 Omaha Public School history teachers pursuing a master’s degree in historical studies. Teachers can begin their coursework in January.
