Madison College students earn bachelor’s degrees

September 6, 2013

From “Lothe earns bachelor degree from Madison Area Technical College/Franklin University recently” — Three Madison Area Technical College students were awarded a bachelor’s degree at a commencement ceremony May 12. However, the degree awarded was not from Madison Area Technical College, but rather from Franklin University, Columbus, Ohio.

The graduates included Mandy Lothe, DeForest – Allied Healthcare Management.

Lothe completed her degree by participating in a unique educational alliance between Madison Area Technical College and Franklin University. That program allows students in the U.S. to combine on campus coursework at their local community college with online classes through Franklin to complete their degree.

Madison Area Technical College is one of more than nearly 270 community colleges across the U.S. that has formed an educational alliance with Franklin University. The Community College Alliance was established to provide students the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree online while remaining in their community.
