Kishwaukee College announced a new program for students to receive a bachelor’s degree in partnership with Iowa Wesleyan Monday.
According to a press release from the college, the program, dubbed “3 + 1,” allows Kishwaukee College students to transfer credits after three years at the college to Wesleyan for a fourth year online, to allow them to complete a Bachelor’s Degree while remaining local.
Kishwaukee College offers Associates degree and other professional and trade certifications, but does not offer a Bachelor’s Degree program, so the partnership with Wesleyan would allow students to achieve that qualification, the release shows.
Students participating in the 3 + 1 program must complete three years of coursework at Kishwaukee, and then can transfer their fourth year to Iowa and earn their bachelor’s in business administration with a concentration in management, criminal justice, or human services.
Kishwaukee College President Laurie Borowicz and Iowa Wesleyan Provost DeWayne Frazier co-signed an articulation agreement, the release shows.
