Building Bridges: UE and Memorial High School Forge Partnership to Build Career-Ready Pathways for Students
Evansville, Ind. (02/05/2024) — The University of Evansville (UE) in partnership with Reitz Memorial High School (MHS) is proud to announce a transformative collaboration that will open education pathways for high school students to earn college credit.
Through this partnership, MHS students with junior status will have the opportunity to earn college credit for courses ranging from Education, Chemistry, Biology, Spanish, and Psychology. These credits are transferable to the University of Evansville or any institution accepting UE transfer credits. Memorial students may also attend college courses on the UE campus as part of their daily class schedule.
This collaboration aims to enhance educational opportunities, providing a seamless academic journey for high school students entering higher education. Faculty at UE will work with high school administrators and instructors to provide additional educational opportunities for MHS students. Students who earn college credit through this partnership will be well prepared to start one of UE's 3-year degree tracks.
"Reitz Memorial High School is thrilled to join forces with the University of Evansville as we believe our shared goal to enrich educational opportunities and create an impact in the students we serve will be beneficial in the years to come, setting the stage for a promising future for all Memorial Tigers," said Memorial High School President Christian Mocek.
