OU extended its generous transfer policy to Johnson County Community College students for up to 80 credit hours – including the associate degree. The remaining upper division credit hours (junior and senior level) are taken at Ottawa University. Students who opt for this pathway are also eligible for a scholarship at Ottawa University to help complete their bachelor’s degree. “We are delighted that Ottawa University is working with us to make continuing on to a bachelor’s degree a reality for so many of our students,” commented Dr. Terry Calaway, president of Johnson County Community College. Currently more than 30,000 students in the greater Kansas City metro earn their associate degree at Johnson County Community College. According to OU President Kevin Eichner, “This partnership reflects our mission of bringing meaningful education opportunities to adult learners. It’s an innovative approach to giving adult learners access to important, fulfilling education, and it reflects the respect we have for the education Johnson County Community College offers.” For more information about the transfer program, visit www.ottawa.edu/jccc.
