CHAFFEY COLLEGE AND CALIFORNIA BAPTIST UNIVERSITY ONLINE PROVIDE DISCOUNT TRANSFER OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS


(Rancho Cucamonga) Chaffey College and California Baptist University Online & Professional Studies (CBU/Online) officials have signed an agreement that will ease the cost and transfer process for students striving to reach their goals for higher education. California Baptist University's Dr. David Poole, vice president for CBU/Online, and Dr. Henry Shannon, Chaffey College Superintendent/President, signed the agreement on April 15, 2015.

“The agreement with CBU/Online is another innovative way we can help Chaffey College students to succeed,” Dr. Shannon said. "This program offers a significant discount in tuition, creates a convenient transfer process, and helps students achieve their goals of earning a four-year degree.”

The Transfer Admission Guarantee agreement offers eligible Chaffey College transfer students admission to CBU/Online and is tailored for the adult student who wants to complete their bachelor's degree using the convenience of online instruction.  "This agreement is beneficial to both the students and the institutions involved," said Dr. Poole. "Many students are striving to transfer, and affordability is a major concern, particularly in California. CBU/Online is ranked 23rd in the nation by US News & World Report for online bachelor’s degree programs and we are excited to offer our quality online programs to Chaffey College students."

The primary goals of the agreement are to increase the transfer rate from Chaffey College to CBU/Online, augment the completion rate of Chaffey College students once they enroll, and coordinate course work between the two institutions.
