Southeast Community College Partners with Concordia University
Students will soon have the opportunity to benefit from a new partnership between Concordia University, Nebraska, and Southeast Community College (SCC; www.southeast.edu). The presidents of the two institutions signed an official partnership on October 2 at the Welcome Center at SCC’s Lincoln Campus.
Concordia president Rev. Dr. Brian Friedrich said a partnership with Southeast provides scholarship and financial aid opportunities for SCC graduates. Southeast Community College president Dr. Paul Illich said SCC is committed to empowering and transforming its students.
Graduates of SCC who have earned an associate degree and who choose to enroll full-time at Concordia will be awarded no less than $15,000 annually in institutional aid as they pursue their bachelor’s degree at the University. In addition, those students will receive a New Horizons Scholarship of $2,000 that stacks incrementally with all other Concordia grants and academic or performance scholarships.
Both the Partnership Guarantee and New Horizons Scholarship are renewable annually if students remain in good academic standing at Concordia with a 2.0 grade-point average or higher.
Transfer students will be required to complete a minimum of 50 post-associate degree semester hours at Concordia University, Nebraska, and will then be awarded a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from Concordia University, Nebraska, upon meeting academic requirements.
