"This partnership with Herzing University is an unprecedented opportunity for students to begin their homeschooling before enjoying the unique experience and transformative of a Marquette education on campus, "said Marquette University President Michael Lovell . "Herzing has been recognized nationally for his excellence in online education and has deep experience with first-generation college students, which aligns with our commitment at Marquette to expand access and meet students where they are."
Applications are now being accepted for the Horizons program, which begins in the fall of 2020 and offers eight core curriculum classes through Herzing. This includes three courses developed and structured by Marquette instructors, as well as access to additional Marquette resources. All courses have been approved for credit transfer in full by Marquette, subject to GPA requirements.
"This innovative partnership with Marquette offers a creative alternative for college-age students across the country to continue their studies with one of the best universities in the country," said Herzing University President Renee Herzing "We look forward to working with Marquette to provide students with the academic experience and support they need to make a successful transition to learning on campus."
The one-year program combines the strengths of each institution to create an "on the ramp" to the Marquette experience. Students will benefit from Herzing University's 20-year experience in online education and best-practice student support nationwide.
To connect students to the Marquette community and prepare for their transition, Marquette will provide a variety of resources throughout the academic year online. Students can interact with an academic advisor who will work with them on their academic journey to Marquette and also access campus libraries, sporting events, and other specific program activities. In addition, they will be assigned a current Marquette student as a peer coach who will serve as a connection and introduction to the community and experience Marquette
