MHCC, EOU sign transfer agreement
Oct. 26, 2017 La Grande, Ore. − Representatives of Mt. Hood Community College and Eastern Oregon University deepened their partnership to include co-enrollment and reverse transfer opportunities for students at both institutions.
David Vande Pol, executive director of Regional Outreach and Innovation at EOU, joined MHCC’s John Hamblin, executive dean of student development, for a formal signing Oct. 6 at the Gresham campus. Leaders and students from both institutions attended the event.
“EOU and MHCC are committed partners with a common goal of offering seamless transfer pathways to allow our students to reach their educational goals,” Vande Pol said. “This transfer agreement allows students to enroll at both institutions and apply credits from both institutions toward degrees at each institution.”
EOU’s 11 regional centers serve students across Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, providing virtual and in-person advising, financial aid resources and educational support. This agreement joins more than a dozen standing Memorandums of Understanding that EOU holds with area colleges.
“EOU is committed to providing community college graduates transfer pathways in which all transfer credits apply toward bachelor’s degrees here at EOU,” Vande Pol said.
Andrea Williams serves as center director at MHCC and regional advisor for Gresham-area students who transfer to EOU for a bachelor’s degree.
