NIU, ECC ink deal allowing reverse credit transfer
Mar 10, 2015 5:54 PM - Northern Illinois University students who haven't completed their two-year associate degrees from Elgin Community College now can transfer credit from NIU courses to graduate from ECC. NIU and ECC inked the deal Tuesday allowing for the reverse transfer of credits. "We know an associate degree is a meaningful credential that increases one's employability," ECC President David Sam said. "If our former students can achieve that while pursuing a bachelor's degree at NIU, it's a win-win for everyone."
