Vincennes University is partnering with Yancheng Polytechnic College in China to offer a new transfer option for students. Through the agreement, Yancheng Polytechnic College graduates can transfer to VU and earn a Bachelor of Science in Technology.

In 2018, VU hosted a Yancheng Polytechnic College delegation to the Vincennes Campus for a four-day Cooperation Conference. During the conference, they signed an agreement committing their respective institutions to foster cooperation in the areas of education and research.

“This agreement is the culmination of years of relationship building, shared values, and the mutual respect between our two institutions. So I am especially pleased that we are able to continue moving ahead together to build this partnership, despite the pandemic,” said VU President Dr. Chuck Johnson. “Through this agreement, YCPC students will have an extraordinary opportunity to continue their education through a baccalaureate degree with VU. This agreement also builds on VU’s existing partnerships and relationships in Yancheng, elsewhere in Jiangsu Province, and China.”

VU says its technology degree prepares students in a range of technical areas and modern technical applications.

“VU has laid the groundwork, and Yancheng Polytechnic College students will have a seamless transfer pathway to VU,” said Assistant Provost for Curriculum and Instruction Rick Kribs. “They will have access to high-quality educational opportunities that lead to in-demand careers and rewarding jobs.”
