Mitchell announces stackable credentials
Mitchell Community College announces that the college has expanded offerings of stackable credentials–short-term continuing education classes that transfer to a curriculum certificate, diploma or degree program.
Mitchell’s Curriculum division will begin partnering with the Continuing Education division in spring 2017. The aim is to offer programming quickly and affordably, promoting goal attainment and student success. According to Dr. Camille Reese, vice president of instruction, “the partnership helps students transition short-term courses to a full curriculum credential.” Stackable credentials are currently available in the cosmetic arts with plans to expand into other areas.
