Herzing University in Toledo and Northwest State Community College are trying to make a bachelorâ??s degree more affordable for students.
The presidents of each college signed a partnership Monday called P.A.C.E. that extends enrollment for another year before transferring to another university. Students can transfer their third year instead of a typical program where they transfer in two.
Herzing University community relations coordinator Kevin Milliken says the program could save a student up to $20,000 off the cost of a typical college education.The colleges have a specific articulation agreement that allows credit transfers to count towards a bachelorâ??s degree.
It is hoped that agreements with the other community colleges including Monroe County, Terra, Owens, could be reached by the end of the year.
