PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH – Owens Community College students with aspirations of pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business from Ohio Northern University will now be able to continue their academic pursuits at the four-year academic institution as the two schools have finalized a new transfer agreement partnership.

The new agreement is designed to help in managing transfer policies, enhancing advising and simply the transfer of academic courses or credits between Owens and Ohio Northern’s James F. Dicke College of Business Administration. As a result of the collaboration, Owens students will have the opportunity to transfer approximately 90 quarter (60 semester hours) credit of academic coursework toward the Bachelor of Science of Business Administration program at Ohio Northern. Owens students will have approximately 60 semester hours of remaining Ohio Northern academic coursework to complete their bachelor’s degree.

Owens students are required to meet pre-established criteria to be admitted to the College of Business Administration at Ohio Northern. Individuals earning an associate degree and completing the new transfer program will be able to enroll as a junior in Ohio Northern’s College of Business Administration program. Prospective students must enroll at Ohio Northern within four years of the start of their associate degree.

“Owens Community College is pleased to collaborate with Ohio Northern University and provide new educational opportunities for the Northwest Ohio region,” said Dr. Renay Scott, Executive Vice President and Provost of Owens Community College. “Both academic institutions are committed to the same values of academic excellence and innovation and this new partnership further aligns those educational philosophies for the betterment for our students.”

Dr. James Fenton Jr., Dean of the College of Business Administration at Ohio Northern University, added, “Ohio Northern University’s College of Business Administration looks forward to collaborating with Owens Community College in advancing the academic capabilities of Owens’ graduates through the completion of Ohio Northern’s four-year business degree program.”
