University Allows Community College Graduates To Earn Accelerated Online Bachelor’s Degrees
Over the past few years, many community colleges have taken steps to increase their academic offerings. Through transfer agreements, a growing number of these institutions have developed relationships with universities that allow graduates to apply their credits toward bachelor's degree programs.

For example, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) and Rogers State University recently forged an agreement that will allow NEO students to seamlessly transfer into a bachelor's degree program at RSU, news channel KTUL reports. As a result of the partnership, holders of associate's degrees from NEO can apply their completed credits toward an online or campus-based program at RSU through the UConnect initiative.

"A community college education is an important step toward a fulfilling life and career," said Jeff Hale, NEO president, quoted by the news source. "In terms of proximity to NEO, RSU is the closest four-year university in Oklahoma. It only makes sense for these two institutions to form a close partnership to provide complete higher education opportunities for residents of northeastern Oklahoma."

Through UConnect, NEO graduates can earn degrees such as bachelor's degrees in business administration, accounting and management in less than two years.
