ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Two stateline schools announced plans Tuesday to make the path to a higher education a little easier for their students.
The Business programs from both Rock Valley College and Rockford University will be partnering up, allowing RVC students, and people with Applied Science degrees, to transition to Rockford University’s Business Management Program.
Conversations with local businesses helped shape the deal, official said.
Rockford University leaders say the agreement will make a degree more attainable for students.
“We know, number one, that people in this area want affordable degrees, right? So we’re creating affordable degree pathways for students,” said Mandolen Mull, Ph.D, Chair of Puri School of Business at Rockford University. “But also previously, individuals that had applied technology degrees were told there was no pathway to a four year institution. Now there is.”
Anyone interested in applying for the program is encouraged to attend a free information session on Thursday, October 24th, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Woodward Technology Center Lobby at Rock Valley College, at 3301 Mulford Road.
