Old Dominion University (ODU) is proud to announce they have partnered with Arizona’s Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) to help students seamlessly transfer and earn their bachelor's degrees online through ODUOnline.

MCCCD is the largest community college district in the United States in terms of enrollment and is the latest of many ODU community college and higher education partnerships. These partnerships focus on transfer and new student success, resources, and helping community college students save time and money by earning their associate degree through Maricopa and transferring to ODU to complete their bachelor's degree.

The Maricopa and ODU teams worked collaboratively to establish the partnership’s first seamless pathway, which focuses on Maricopa’s associate level Dental Hygiene program and ODU's Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene.  Maricopa Dental Hygiene students attending the Phoenix, Rio Salado or Mesa community college locations can now transfer seamlessly while maximizing their transfer credits.

ODU's 40+ online bachelor's programs in other fields are also available to transfer students through this partnership. Interested students are encouraged to work with a dedicated ODUOnline coach to review their transcripts and build a plan for successful admission.

"I'd like to extend a welcome to everyone at Maricopa Community Colleges into the Monarch family," said Andy Casiello, Associate Vice President for Distance Learning. "We're proud to share their vision of helping students achieve, and we look forward to many years of partnership and student success."

Additionally, ODU offers opportunities for Maricopa’s administration, faculty, and staff to continue their own training and education. Popular programs include ODU's online PhD program in Community College Leadership, as well as several other graduate degrees and certificates focusing on education.
