Agreement allows students to earn bachelor’s

June 30, 2014 by Administrator · Comments Off 

An agreement signed last week between heads of two local secondary universities makes official a pact that allows college students an opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree at Glen Oaks Community College.

A ceremony involving Glen Oaks president David Devier and his Trine University’s Earl Brooks II took place Thursday at the Centreville-area campus.

Brooks said the agreement means students in certain fields can even earn a master’s degree, thanks to the agreement.

The deal means Trine classes previously held at a satellite location in Sturgis will instead take place at the Glen Oaks campus.

A press conference is scheduled later this week by Glen Oaks Community College regarding a new partnership with Trine University.

Details to be revealed during a 10:30 a.m. Thursday media event are expected to elaborate on a program wherein Glen Oaks students are offered a chance to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree from Trine without having to leave St. Joseph County.

The 2+2 Pathway program will allow students to earn their associate’s degree at Glen Oaks, and then continue their schooling through Trine at its satellite location also on the Glen Oaks campus.

Trine officials said a scholarship incentive will be made available for Glen Oaks students who maintain a grade-point average of 3.0 or better.
