The online degree completion programs included in this agreement provide our graduates a flexible way to earn their bachelor’s degree, which is especially valuable for learners who want to continue their education while working.”

“We are delighted to welcome graduates from HACC into our online community of learners,” says MU President, Dr. Daniel A.

We look forward to identifying additional opportunities for their graduates.”
