Henry Ford College, Olivet launch transfer agreement

The Detroit News

Henry Ford College students can earn a degree from a Christian university with campuses across the Midwest, officials announced Wednesday.

A dual admissions initiative created by Olivet Nazarene University allows HFC students to transfer from the Dearborn community college and pursue degrees in bachelor of business administration, bachelor of applied science in management, bachelor of science in nursing or master of science in nursing.

“Pursue ONU” also allows students to be simultaneously admitted to HFC, which has two campuses, and ONU’s School of Graduate and Continuing Studies. Studies also include education and ministry at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels. Approved in all 50 states, classes can be taken online.

“HFC is dedicated to preparing students for a rapidly changing world and workplace,” said Adam Cloutier, HFC’s director for the Office of Academic Affairs, in a statement. “We are thrilled to provide our students with a new opportunity to continue their education, earn a 4-year degree and advance their career.”

The partnership paves the way for students to transfer more quickly by taking general education and prerequisite classes before starting as full-time Olivet students, officials said Wednesday.

“We look forward to partnering with HFC through Pursue ONU by offering its students additional pathways toward success,” said Tiffany Holohan, its senior director of transfer relations at the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies.
