October 17, 2019

Chippewa PartnershipMarian University has announced a new partnership with Chippewa Valley Technical College, allowing CVTC alumni to complete their Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene.

Effective immediately, it is the only agreement in Wisconsin allowing for the completion of this degree in as few as 16 months, with CVTC alumni eligible for a 10% scholarship.

“As Marian University grows and strives to offer programs that set it apart from other universities, we are pleased to be able to welcome CVTC alumni and help them continue their education and enter the workforce,” said Marian University Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Russell Mayer. “Establishing agreements like this allows Marian University to help even more students and expand the opportunities of those wanting to become dental hygienists in Wisconsin.”

Marian University will accept all credits from students’ associate’s degrees from CVTC, permitting students to build upon their previously held degree by entering Marian University only needing 50 credits for completion of their bachelor’s degree.

With the agreement in place, Marian University can now have this agreement signed statewide to allow more students with associate’s degrees to continue their education utilizing its completion program.

“This is a great fit for both institutions because of our dedication and commitment to student success and helping students advance their education and careers,” said Dr. Julie Furst-Bowe, CVTC Vice President of Instruction.
