Manor College and Holy Family University Sign Dual Admissions Agreement
Manor College and Holy Family University officials, on Wednesday, April 13, signed a Dual Admissions Agreement that enables Manor students to transfer seamlessly into Holy Family as juniors, without losing time or credits, and to save money in the process.
The new agreement makes a four-year degree more cost effective for students at Manor, because students pay less for their first two years at Manor than they would for the first two years at Holy Family.
Through the new agreement, a student enrolled at Manor may fill out an “Intent to Transfer” form declaring plans to transfer to Holy Family.
When that student completes an Associate’s Degree at Manor, and meets Holy Family’s admissions criteria, that student is guaranteed admission into the University, and may transfer in at junior status. Students must take certain Manor courses in order to transfer to the University at junior status.
With the Dual Admissions Agreement, students will be able to enter many programs in Holy Family’s School of Arts and Sciences and School of Business Administration.
Manor President Sister Mary Cecilia Jurasinski, OSBM, and Holy Family President Sister Francesca Onley, CSFN, Ph.D. signed the document, as well as Sister Maureen McGarrity, CSFN, Ph.D. Holy Family’s Vice President of Academic Affairs and Sally Mydlowec, Executive Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs at Manor.
Academic officials from Manor who attended the ceremony include Frank Farrell, Chair of Liberal Arts Division and Senior Associate Professor of Religious Studies; Eleanor Shirley, Director Business Administration Program and Senior Associate Professor of the Business Division; Christine Krewson, Transfer Coordinator; and Jane Zegestowsky, Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs.
