Owens Community College continues to make it easy to transfer credits into the college and elsewhere.
Dr. Renay Scott, college provost, announced three more articulation agreements at Tuesday's board of trustees meeting.
Owens now has a Tech Prep articulation agreement with Ohio Hi-Point Career Center that will ensure that students graduating from Hi-Point that attend Owens receive college credit for articulated courses offered at Hi-Point that qualify for Tech Prep credit.
Also added were agreements with Spring Arbor University, which will articulate Owens Associate of Arts/Social Work Concentration with a Bachelor of Social Work; and Eastern Michigan University, which will articulate Owens Associate of Applied Science in Dietetic Technology with their Bachelor of Science in Dietetics.
Articulation is an agreement between a community college and four-year college to provide a transition for transfer students from community college graduates into four-year colleges.
Owens now has 64 such agreements with seven pending.
Owens also has signed a dual admission agreement with University of Toledo.
Scott also updated the board on program accreditations.
Based upon the Medical Assistant Program having no outstanding citations and a satisfactory 2013 Annual Report, the Medical Assisting Education Review Board is prepared to forward to the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs a recommendation for continuing accreditation with the next review to be scheduled no later than November 2018, she said.
The Physical Therapy Assistant program will continue to be accredited based upon the programs demonstration of general compliance with the evaluative criteria by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education. The program's accreditation status has been extended to fall 2018.
Finally, the Ohio Department of Health reviewed the status of the State Tested Nurse Aide Training program and determined that the program is in compliance with the Ohio Administrative Code and is in good standing for the next year.
Also at the meeting, the board decided to sell property on Tracy Road that used to be the Training and Operations Center. The site sits on 6.47 acres and the building is approximately 53,944 square feet.
