St. Gregory's University in Shawnee, Okla., recently formed a partnership with a nearby college which will make it easier for local students to attend St. Gregory's, the University announced.
Students graduating with associate's degrees from Seminole State College are now eligible to receive approximately 60 hours of credit towards a St. Gregory's University bachelor's degree.
St. Gregory's reports:
According to Seminole State College President Dr. James Utterback, St. Gregory’s rich history as an institution devoted to academic excellence made the decision to partner with the university an easy one.
“I’ve always felt that students coming here for a couple of years and then having the opportunity to go to St. Gregory’s, to such an outstanding institution, and stay close to home, would be a wonderful opportunity,” Utterback said. “We think this partnership will pay great benefits to our students, and that’s why we’re all here.”
“It is truly a great day when two educational institutions can come together and combine the power of a private university and the power of a public community college for the benefit of our communities, our students and all Oklahomans.”
St. Gregory's University is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
