POCATELLO — The College of Business at Idaho State University has been approved to begin offering a fully online completion degree for those holding an Associate of Science or Associate of Arts degree from another institution. Students completing the program will earn a Bachelor of Science degree in general business.

"The College of Business found that there were over 10,000 students listed in the state Board of Education's records with an associate degree from an Idaho institution without finishing a bachelor's degree," said Bob Houghton, associate dean of the College of Business. "We are hoping that by providing a smooth pathway, the College can help those students complete their bachelor's degree."

The program will launch in the fall 2021 semester and students can begin registering this spring.

According to Houghton, those who graduate with a bachelor's degree will earn more than 50% more than those holding an associate degree over the course of their career.

"Completing a bachelor's level degree will enable students to obtain a higher position or better change of career," said Houghton. "This program will provide an opportunity for students to have a breadth of exposure, at a very high level, to different business skills, knowledge and courses."

Houghton explained that the program will be offered on a part-time basis, making it easier for students to complete the degree at their own pace.

"The initial plan was to offer the majority of the required classes asynchronously, but the COVID-19 situation has made it so that there will be both synchronous and asynchronous offerings," he said.

Asynchronous courses are recorded, allowing students to watch the lectures anytime and anywhere they are available. Synchronous courses can be completed anywhere online or through a distance learning classroom at a scheduled date and time. Houghton said most of the synchronous courses will be offered during the hours between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Anyone that is interested in the program should first meet with a College of Business advisor to discuss both the application process and declaring the degree.

Waubonsee Community College partners with University of Illinois Chicago to help nursing students - Kane County Chronicle

Posted: 20 Nov 2020 01:41 PM PST

SUGAR GROVE – Waubonsee Community College nursing students may have an easier time earning their bachelor's degree, thanks to a new agreement with the University of Illinois Chicago.

According to a news release, officials from both schools created a dual-admissions pathway from the Waubonsee associate degree in nursing program to UIC's fully online RN and BSN degree programs.

"The UIC College of Nursing has long been dedicated to educating nurse leaders throughout the state," stated Terri Weaver, dean of the UIC College of Nursing, in the release. "Now, through this partnership, we can make a meaningful and almost immediate difference in growing the nursing workforce across the northern region of Illinois at this critical time in health care."

"We are excited to partner with UIC to give our current and future nursing students the opportunity to continue their education in this important field during this time," stated Jeff Gregor, dean for Health Professions and Public Service at Waubonsee.

Under the agreement, the dual-admissions pathway will allow nursing students to earn an associate degree in nursing at Waubonsee, while at the same time, enrolling in identified courses which are part of the fully online UIC RN to BSN degree completion program.

"With this agreement, we can provide a new level of convenience for students at Waubonsee," stated Kate Tredway, director of the UIC College of Nursing RN to BSN degree completion program. "We have a history of Waubonsee nursing graduates joining the UIC RN BSN program. This new collaboration offers an additional option to current and pre nursing students at Waubonsee to participate in a doable, accessible, timely, and affordable pathway to a bachelor's degree in nursing."

Upon successful completion of Waubonsee's ADN program, students will be awarded their associate degree and continue their progress in the UIC online RN to BSN program. UIC will confer the bachelor's degree in nursing after graduation requirements are met.
