DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — Danville Area Community College and Iowa Wesleyan University are joining forces for the benefit of students.
A new articulation partnership will allow students to complete three yeras of study at DACC, then transfer to Iowa Wesleyan, in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, to complete a bachelor’s degree.
DACC credits will transfer to Iowa’s online program for a fourth year of study.
The new articulation agreement will allow Iowa Wesleyan to help students who are primarily place bound to complete bachelor’s degrees in IW’s highly ranked and rigorous online programs without leaving their jobs or moving.
Transfer credits are seamless as both DACC and IW are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
“We applaud Iowa Wesleyan University for reaching out across Illinois to partner with us in providing local and affordable bachelor’s degrees in Danville. For community college students, the 3 + 1 is a winning formula,” said DACC President Stephen Nacco. “Without leaving Vermilion County, students can earn their bachelor’s degree from a top university in high-demand programs like business administration, criminal justice, and human services. It’s a great gift to Illinois from our friends in Iowa.”
DACC already has a 3 + 1 program with Franklin University.
