MARIETTA, OH (June 28, 2016) – Students with an associate degree from Washington State Community College (WSCC) will have a new, more flexible option to achieve a bachelor’s degree thanks to a partnership announced with HerzingUniversity.
DEGREE UP provides a student-centered, affordable educational opportunity for WSCC students. Following students’ completion of an associate degree and application to DEGREE UP, they can pursue credit from both institutions simultaneously, including additional courses through WSCC. This partnership will allow students to get educational training while taking advantage of an additional two years of tuition rates for many of the required bachelor’s level courses.
“The collaboration between WSCC and Herzing is a great example of how we add value to our students’ academic endeavors. With this newly established relationship, our graduates can easily augment their education to earn their bachelor’s degree from Herzing,” explained Dr. Bradley Ebersole, President at WSCC.
DEGREE UP students will take their courses from Herzing University online or at one of Herzing’s brick-and-mortar campuses, such as in Akron or Toledo, allowing them to stay and finish their bachelor’s degree in-state. The end result is a bachelor’s degree from Herzing University in as little as four years.
For Herzing University, the DEGREE UP program serves as a nationwide model for career-focused education.
“We want to give all students an equal opportunity to pursue competitive, career-ready degrees,” said Herzing University Akron Campus President Bill Cassidy. “Everyone should be able to earn a bachelor’s degree in the most efficient manner possible, without having to worry about a difficult transition between schools.”
