For Release: December 01, 2003
Mt. Hood Community College and Marylhurst University will enter into a new co-admission partnership allowing students the ease of attending both institutions. This new partnership is designed to improve student access to undergraduate education, streamline an academic plan for students seeking a baccalaureate degree and improve the success of our students.
Under the new agreement, students transferring with an Associate of Arts Transfer Degree will be awarded junior status at Marylhurst. Students also will be eligible to apply for scholarships through Marylhurst, have full access to Marylhurst's student services, and enjoy the convenience of filling out only one application for both institutions. In addition, Marylhurst will waive its application fee.
The convenience of simultaneously attending both institutions provides more academic options and assures students they can get into the classes they need. Through Marylhurst's Prior Learning Assessment Program, MHCC students may earn up to 45 credits toward a bachelor's degree for learning at work and from life experiences.
The public announcement and signing of the partnership will take place on Monday, Dec. 8, at 10:00 a.m. at Mt. Hood Community College campus, MHCC Board room (room 2360, 26000 SE Stark St., Gresham).
MHCC President Robert Silverman and Marylhurst President Nancy Wilgenbusch will join students and staff at the signing ceremony.
