FAU Partners with MDC for LINK Transfer Success Program
Florida Atlantic University and Miami Dade College (MDC) recently announced a new partnership to establish the LINK Transfer Success Program. This program is a collaborative effort to facilitate the admission and smooth transition of students from an MDC associate degree to an FAU baccalaureate degree.
“We are excited to formalize this partnership with Miami Dade College, the largest institution of higher education in the Florida,” said Jessica Acevedo-Lopez, director for new student recruitment and LINK Program.
The program will serve students who are currently enrolled in MDC and plan to complete their associate degree within three years or six consecutive semesters (excluding summers).
“Through the FAU LINK program, Miami Dade College students planning on transferring to FAU will receive their FAU student ID which opens the door to FAU events, academic advising and exclusive scholarships,” said Acevedo-Lopez. “FAU's campuses in Broward county and online programs expand access to academic opportunities for MDC students.”
The FAU LINK Transfer Success Program was established in 2009 to reinforce the University’s commitment to state colleges and transfer students. MDC joins FAU’s other LINK partners, including Palm Beach State College, Broward College and Indian River State College.
