“We have been so pleased about EWU’s interest in our institution and in our students,” Stanley said. “We’ve been working with the spirit of that program last year.”
Stanley said the program streamlines the pathway from two-year colleges to four-year. The program should be finalized early this spring, he said. Although NIC students are already eligible for discounted tuition via the Western Undergraduate Exchange program, they would pay less under this program.
“It gives us credibility to be associated with a university as successful as Eastern,” Stanley said.
Dave Meany, a spokesman for Eastern, emphasized that the agreement remains tentative. However, it’s similar to agreements the university already has with other community colleges. Full story. Eli Francovich, SR
