Triton College and National Louis University announce an additional bachelor’s degree option available on Triton’s campus

Triton College students and anyone who holds an associate’s degree can now pursue a bachelor’s degree in Special Education from National Louis University, without leaving Triton College’s campus in River Grove.

National Louis University recently added the bachelor’s degree option to Triton College’s University Center, which provides anyone with an associate’s degree the option of pursuing a select bachelor’s or master’s degree from several four-year universities through classes on Triton’s campus. University Center partners include National Louis University, Benedictine University, Governors State University, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Eastern Illinois University, and the latest addition, Dominican University. The degree will be offered through the University Center starting fall 2013.

“We are thrilled that National Louis University has chosen to offer this additional option through our University Center for students to pursue their bachelor’s degree,” said Triton College President Patricia Granados. “Offering a bachelor’s degree in special education complements our growing education program and will bring awareness to this specialized field.” 

“We identify the field of special education as a growing need in Illinois and we want to attract more students to this difficult field to address this need,” said National Louis University President Nivine Megahed. “We truly appreciate this continued expansion with Triton College and hope we can strengthen this partnership further.”

Conveniently accessible to students on the first floor of Triton’s Student Center (Room B-111), the University Center houses office space for enrollment representatives from each participating university who are available to converse with students about their higher education options.
