Eligible Dallas College Members Can Easily Transition into Programs at ACE

INDIANAPOLIS - Dallas College and American College of Education have announced a transfer agreement that will make higher-level degrees more accessible to members of the Dallas College community. Under the new agreement, members of Dallas College will be provided a seamless enrollment experience. Faculty, staff, students and alumni will all be eligible to receive an ACE partnership grant to reduce tuition.

“Providing a clear pathway for members of Dallas College to complete a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree is another way ACE stays true to its mission of making high-quality education as accessible as possible,” said ACE President Dr. Shawntel Landry. “We look forward to building our partnership with Dallas College to bring our online programs within reach of more community college students, faculty and staff.”

When asked about the significance of this agreement, TJ Cafferty, ACE Assistant Director for Strategic Partner Development, stated, “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dallas College in previous roles and I know their commitment to students and employees comes first. I believe this agreement will go a long way toward supporting all the stakeholders of Dallas College. This is definitely a win-win situation for all parties involved.”

All ACE classes are rooted in forward-thinking, evidence-based instruction that is immediately applicable in the workplace. And with flexible online coursework, students can study on their own time. “Thanks to my program at ACE, I have achieved my professional goals and am now a member of ACE’s core faculty,” said Sara Reichard, ACE faculty member and nursing program alumna. “The resources and tools I gained in my program help me every day to succeed in my new role.”

According to Dallas College Provost, Dr. Shawnda Floyd, “We are delighted to add this agreement to our ever-growing list of transfer opportunities for students. By partnering with ACE, we’ve made it possible for our students, faculty and staff to seamlessly transfer into the next stage of their education.”
