Time is running out for former Mid-Plains Community College students who hope to take advantage of the college’s “Reverse Transfer” program.
Reverse Transfer allows students to transfer credits accumulated at a four-year university or other community college back to MPCC, where they will count towards the two-year degree program requirements. The program may only be available at the college for the 2014 Spring and Summer terms.
As an added incentive, a scholarship fund is available to encourage students to return to MPCC to complete their associate degree. Students must meet a set of criteria to be eligible, but if eligible, the scholarship may fund tuition up to 15-credit hours. The college has identified more than 800 students who may be eligible for Reverse Transfer scholarship funds.
“The students we have identified have completed more than half of an associate degree, yet never met their educational goal with the College. This grant and tuition assistance will hopefully encourage students to complete their associate degree and become even more marketable in today’s workforce,” said Dr. Jody Tomanek, Area Vice President of Instruction.
