Regional campuses announce new agreements with IU East
Miami's regional campuses at Middletown and Hamilton and Indiana University East announced a new partnership today that will allow certain Miami students to transfer easily to Indiana University East in Richmond. Nine articulation agreements were signed at the Preble County Educational Service Center.
Kelly Cowan, interim dean at Miami Middletown; Daniel E. Hall, dean at Miami Hamilton; and David J. Fulton, chancellor at Indiana University East, signed agreements that will allow Miami graduates who take predetermined courses for their associate degrees to transfer with ease into a bachelor's degree program at Indiana University East.
“These agreements will give our students another option, another way to build on their Miami associate degrees,” Cowan said. “It's nice to be doing something to make life a little less complicated for our students, especially with a respected partner like Indiana University East.”
The agreements recommend courses for Miami students who wish to transfer to IU East and earn a bachelor's degree without loss of credit. Included are specific guidelines for degrees in the areas of business administration, communication, criminal justice, elementary education, fine arts, general studies, humanities, natural science and math, and social work.
“We are delighted to offer graduates of Miami University's regional campuses an opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree at Indiana University East. These agreements, along with the Indiana Ohio Tuition Reciprocity Agreement, will help make the continuation of their education to the baccalaureate level not only seamless but also affordable,” said Fulton.
In June 2004, various Ohio and Indiana institutions of higher education agreed to participate in a reciprocity agreement under the approval of the Ohio Board of Regents and the Indiana Commission on Higher Education. The agreement enables residents of certain counties in Indiana to take courses at specific Ohio institutions and pay in-state rates. Likewise, Ohio residents in certain counties may take courses at specific Indiana institutions and also receive the benefit of paying in-state rates.
