What happens when your state’s community college system makes an enormous transfer agreement with an out-of-state private institution?
Reported by Education Dive, students from Pennsylvania’s 14 community colleges will now be able to transfer up to 90 credits to Southern New Hampshire University and complete their degree for $288 per credit hour, a 10% discount off SNHU’s regular tuition rate.
This makes SNHU a more economically rational transfer choice than almost any public college in the state.
The takeaway? Do your state’s community colleges see you as a viable option? Or is there an out-of-state partner that’s going to do a better job creating a more compelling pathway?
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
