Missouri Southern, Crowder form Honors Program partnership

Joplin, MO (SNS) – A partnership between the Honors Programs at Missouri Southern State University and Crowder College was formalized today during a ceremony held in Billingsly Student Center at Missouri Southern.

The partnership between the two programs will allow students in Crowder’s Honors Program to transition into Missouri Southern’s program as juniors.

Dr. Michael Howarth, director of the Honors Program at Missouri Southern, and Suzanne Puckett, coordinator of Crowder’s program, believe the partnership will result in a smooth transition for students.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this partnership with Crowder College, and to welcome Crowder’s Honors students to Missouri Southern,” said Howarth. “Not only will this agreement build a stronger partnership between our two schools, it will also aid in a smoother transition for Honors students. By ensuring that Crowder students understand which courses will and will not transfer to MSSU’s Honors Program, we are helping to save them time and money.”

“This is a natural transition for our students as they continue the highly rigorous academic requirements of both Honors programs,” said Puckett.

    Tuition is still going up at Missouri Southern State University, but it's tweaking the cost increase to credit hours to avoid a state fine. Missouri Southern's Board of Governors approved a 15 percent increase in student tuition last April, upping credit hours by $30. But state education law doesn't allow tuition increases beyond the consumer price index. To avoid a $1.1 million fine, MSSU adjusted down the tuition increase to $20 more per credit.
