PENDLETON, Ore. May 12, 2017 – Students can soon look forward to accessing more courses, programs, degrees and resources through Eastern Oregon University and Blue Mountain Community College simultaneously.
A new partnership enabling co-admission and co-enrollment of students at both institutions will be inked at 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 17, in Pioneer Hall on the BMCC campus.
EOU President Tom Insko and BMCC President Cam Preus will join key members from teams at both institutions to talk more about the launch of the program at the event.
“BMCC is thrilled to enter into this partnership,” President Preus said. “EOU is our highest transfer partner, and this allows us to formalize the opportunity for students to effortlessly transfer to continue their educations. We appreciate EOU’s willingness to further enhance the strong partnership it has with BMCC.”
Students who complete the new joint application for admission will receive assistance from both institutions, including academic advising and other resources like tutoring, library access and disability services. Tuition and fees will be assessed based on courses taken at each school respectively.
“We are excited to enhance access and affordability for students in eastern Oregon through this partnership with Blue Mountain Community College,” President Insko said. “Reducing barriers to degree attainment by providing seamless curricular pathways and coordination of support services will increase student success. This is a logical progression of our relationship with BMCC and the region will benefit from this collaboration.”
Students can take advantage of the program beginning in fall 2017.
