Impressed by the growing partnerships, the Community College Times recently reported on UMUC’s transfer agreements and alliances being built with two-year colleges across the nation.
Working to “provide educational continuum” for students not only inside of Maryland, but outside as well, UMUC has built nearly 80 alliance agreements. With these connections, students from all over can now take advantage of the university’s online degree programs without having to leave home.
“Everything we have built in the alliance program is about completion,” said Lisa Romano, UMUC’s associate vice president of college and university partnerships, when she spoke to the publication.
Having been a transfer student herself, Romano discusses the confusion students face when moving from a two-year to a four-year institution. Working to close the gaps and simplify the process for students, Romano explains UMUC’s goal to “strip down the barriers” by making sure there’s transparency in how their credits will transfer.
