Transfer students with an associate of arts or an associate of science degree from an accredited institution can now enroll at Heidelberg and complete a bachelor’s degree in the same major in only 60 credit hours, 大概两年吧. 没有额外的文书工作. 没有繁文缛节. 没有障碍. Heidelberg’s Open Transfer program removes all of that for you, said Dr. Tony Bourne, vice president for Enrollment 管理 and 市场营销 at Heidelberg.
Transfer students who want to pursue bachelor’s degrees often face losing credits and courses that don’t align with the university programs they choose when they decide to pursue their bachelor’s degree, 托尼解释. This means that degree-seeking transfer students must retake courses they have already passed or entirely new courses just to meet a four-year school’s unique requirements. Just two or three extra classes may mean they have to stay for an extra semester, costing these students thousands of dollars. Often, students have a whole extra year in front of them.
“Universities should be finding ways to make this process work for students,” Tony said. “We feel if you graduate from an accredited associate’s degree program, you’ve done your part. Making a pathway toward a bachelor’s degree is the university’s burden, not the student’s.
“Heidelberg has decided the old method of exclusionary agreements, paperwork and barriers to entry should no longer be the norm. We’re excited to move past this outdated practice.”
