JOPLIN, MO.--- Missouri Southern State University and Crowder College announce an honor program partnership. The two schools formalized their agreement today during a ceremony at MSSU. The partnership will allow students in the honors program at Crowder to transfer into the Missouri Southern Honors Program at the junior level. Leaders at Missouri Southern say it builds a stronger bridge with Crowder students.
"So beginning with our best and brightest, and showing them some more supportive paths is a great start to helping more students see the possibilities," said Alan Marble, MSSU Interim President.
"We want to make that transfer process just as seamless as possible so they can just get right in here and get finished on time," said Kent Farmsworth
