Creating Flexibility for the Online Student: The University of Southern Mississippi and MSVCC partnership

730 views

Published on

Through a consortium agreement between The University of Southern Mississippi (Southern Miss) and the Mississippi Virtual Community College (MSVCC), Southern Miss students enrolled in a fully online program will have access to additional online general education courses offered by MSVCC, and not currently offered online through Southern Miss. Fall 2010 was the first semester these courses were offered and the response has been very positive with an enrollment of over 60 Southern Miss students in MSVCC courses. The partnership will continue as the need is identified from the growth of fully online programs. This presentation discusses how this partnership came about and what it took to make it happen.
