Officials at Ecclesia College in Springdale and the Northwest Arkansas Community College have signed an agreement that provides a seamless transfer system for NWACC students to complete their bachelor’s degree programs from Ecclesia College, according to a news release Friday.
Two degree programs are currently available for students seeking the transfer option, the news release states.
“NWACC students gain maximum benefit from this agreement if they complete an associate degree from NWACC with advisement toward either business or sport management. Sixty associate degree hours with a grade of “C” or above will transfer into the B.S. in Business Administration degree at Ecclesia College. Sixty Associate of Arts degree hours with a grade of “C” or above according to the recommend core for sport management will transfer into the B.S. in Sport Management degree program at Ecclesia,” the news release states.
Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson, NWACC’s president, said the community college is pleased to be able to partner with Ecclesia College. “We look forward to collaborating with Ecclesia to better meet the educational goals of students throughout the region,” she said.
She continued, “It’s a pleasure to join forces and help launch students on their pathway to successful careers in these key areas.”
