Transfer Agreement Connects Tri-C and Union Institute & University
Partnership offers Tri-C grads up to $3,000 in scholarships to enroll at Union
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) and Union Institute & University today announced a partnership providing a seamless and cost-effective pathway from an associate degree at Tri-C to a bachelor’s degree at Union.
Tri-C graduates who transfer into Union undergraduate programs will receive a scholarship of $100 per credit hour for the first 30 credit hours of registration — a savings of up to $3,000. An additional $500 scholarship is available for Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society members.
Union is a nationwide university with academic centers in Ohio, Florida and California that also ranks among the nation’s Top 100 schools for online bachelor’s programs.
Union has also received recognition as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HIS) by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Postsecondary Education. More than 25 percent of undergraduate students at the university are Hispanic.
The agreement with Tri-C expands on Union’s commitment to serve students regardless of where they live and work, said Sonya M. Fultz, the university’s director of academic partnerships and innovation.
“Transfer agreement partnerships are another example of Union’s commitment to meet students where they are in their educational career,” Fultz said.
Tri-C now has established transfer agreements with nearly 40 four-year colleges and universities to offer students greater opportunities to continue their education and pursue advanced degrees.
