MCU Student Teach-out update – We continue to work with University of the Cumberlands, Murray State University, and Campbellsville University to develop a SACS, DOE, and CPE approved teach-out agreement for our students. The teach-out agreement will be very beneficial to MCU students and will address transfer, tuition, financial aid, and residency requirements. The goal is to partner our students with three universities that can provide similar degree programs at costs similar to MCU tuition costs.
When the teach-out plan is approved, the three partner universities will directly contact MCU students. The goal of University of the Cumberlands, Murray State University, and Campbellsville University is to match each MCU student with a program that best meets their needs for graduation. All three institutions offer degree programs designed for working adults, on-line, and traditional students. MCU is asking our students to be patient as we seek approval of the teach-out plan. The goal of all institutions involved in this process is to help MCU students transfer all credits and complete their degree programs in as short a time as possible.
Mid-Continent University is working with Murray State University, the University of the Cumberland’s, and Campbellsville University to develop teach-out and transfer agreements for Mid-Continent Students. MCU and these three sister institutions are working with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, who will provide final approval of a teach-out and transfer plan.
We are honored to be partnering with universities of such quality as we work to ensure our students are cared for during this time of transition. We are confident that Murray State University, the University of the Cumberland’s, and Campbellsville University will help our students to easily transition to education programs that are similar to what are students received at MCU.
We will work diligently with our accreditor, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, to ensure that the needs of our students are met. Final approval of any teach-out or transfer agreement is handled by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education, and the Department of Education.
