OTC signs second online partnership

Posted online
Ozarks Technical Community College finalized a transfer agreement allowing its students to easily transfer into the online program at University of Illinois.

“Increasingly, universities from all over America are recognizing the importance of strong articulation agreements with community colleges,” OTC President Hal Higdon said in a news release. “Partnerships like this are beneficial not only for both institutions, but also for the students, who now have the opportunity to transition smoothly from OTC to UIS.”

OTC signed the agreement this morning with UIS's Springfield, Ill., campus.

The agreement follows a trend of enrollment in OTC's online classes, which is up 15 percent this fall, with roughly 2,300 students taking the majority of their classes online.

OTC signed a similar agreement with Adelphi, Md.-based University of Maryland University College, a largely online educational institution, on Nov. 29, marking the first time the college had entered into an online transfer agreement.
