Representatives of Eastern Illinois University and Danville Area Community College recently entered into an agreement that will further improve the transfer process for Danville-area students interested in completing an associate’s degree and then transferring to EIU to complete a baccalaureate degree.
The Dual Admission Transfer Agreement was signed by both institutions. Representing DACC were Alice Marie Jacobs, president, and David Keitzmann, vice president for academic services. Representing EIU were Lou Hencken, president, and Blair Lord, provost and vice president for academic affairs.
Students who participate in the Dual Admission Program will be able to track their progress toward a baccalaureate degree at Eastern while they are still taking classes at DACC. Students will not only receive academic advising from DACC staff while they are taking classes at the community college, but will also have access to financial aid planning and academic guidance assistance at EIU.
