Mount Mercy University announces partnership with EICC

MAKING DEGREES MORE ATTAINABLE

Mount Mercy University has announced a new partnership with Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) for students wishing to pursue specific majors.

The program creates specified transfer major associate degrees, laying out the precise path students complete at Eastern Iowa Community Colleges before continuing at Mount Mercy.

“For students enrolled in one of the transfer major programs, it is like being a student at Mount Mercy University, but they are able to save money and start their major closer to home,” said Terri Crumley, vice president for admissions and marketing. “With a specific course map detailing the classes they’ll need to take for their first two years, they can also get started knowing they’ll be ready to transfer seamlessly into their major once they’ve completed their transfer major associate’s degree.”
