Norwich University has renewed its strategic partnership with The Affordable College Public Benefit Corporation to help more students afford and attain a high-quality degree, certificate, or credential. The renewal of the partnership advances the collaboration between the transfer-friendly leadership team from Norwich and the entrepreneurial talent from Affordable College alongside a network of other entrepreneurial higher education leaders. The partnership will continue to emphasize helping more students transfer with more credits, earning a degree in less time for less money.
The partnership between Affordable College and Norwich University has also expanded its reach into more community colleges in Upstate NY such as Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica. Student demand for access to the Affordable College Transfer Marketplace has driven the partners to invest further in community college success efforts.
Vice President and Dean of the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies at Norwich University, Dr. William Clements stated, “Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies is proud to work with Affordable College to shape the advancement of students academically, professionally and personally. Affordable College offers streamlined management of the inquiry to matriculation process on behalf of the student and institutions, which impact the transfer student and overall transfer market.”
Affordable College Founder, Sean O’Brien said, “We are delighted that Norwich University has renewed its commitment to our cause. Like other transfer-friendly universities in our network, Norwich understands that community colleges are a strategic source of proven learners, and that simplified and successful transfer admissions leads to higher completion rates.
The Affordable College Public Benefit Corporation is a B Corp founded to help more students afford and attain a high-quality degree, certificate or credential through its community college success platform that brings together community colleges and universities in a transfer marketplace. The community college success platform also increases readiness, enrollment, retention and transfer at community colleges.
