The RCU campus branch at UCC is partnering with its Business Technology department to integrate the Financial Services certificate program. The one-year certificate, at a total of 26 credits, can be completed in conjunction with UCC’s articulation agreement with Southern Oregon University (SOU). It means UCC students will have the ability to transfer those credits to SOU to pursue a bachelor’s degree. As an added bonus, a student who works at the RCU campus branch at UCC has the ability to transfer to the RCU campus branch at SOU. Find out more about this great partnership.
