University Of Findlay And Owens Community College To Partner On New Program

3/26/19 – 10:50 A.M.

Owens Community College and the University of Findlay will officially announce a new partnership later this week. The schools are rolling out the “Oiler Express” during a Thursday afternoon ceremony. The program will allow students to dual enroll at both institutions. Students will earn their associate degree at Owens, and then transfer to UF to finish their bachelor’s degree.

The University says it will track students while they are at Owens to make sure their credits transfer without any problems.

In a statement, UF president Dr. Katherine Fell said, “the University of Findlay and Owens Community College have been strong partners for many years, and this new program is evidence of our institutions’ commitment to ensuring that our community continues to thrive.”

Owens president Dr. Steve Robinson says, “this program creates a seamless process for students to begin their academic careers at Owens and then continue straight through to their bachelors degree with the University of Findlay.”
