Wittenberg signs Teach-Out Partner agreement with Notre Dame College

Wittenberg University announced today that is has signed a Teach-Out Partner agreement with Notre Dame College (NDC), in South Euclid, Ohio.

NDC recently announced that it will end in-person instruction at the close of spring semester 2024. Through this new agreement, current NDC students can continue their education at 11 partner colleges and universities beginning with the 2024-25 academic year. Wittenberg is among the 11.

The agreement allows current Notre Dame College students in good standing with at least 60 completed credits to receive guaranteed admission to pursue their degrees uninterrupted at a partner institution, with comparable net tuition and transfer of all credits. Through the agreement, NDC students will also be able to complete their degree in relatively the same amount of time. Other students in good standing with less than 60 completed credits may have the opportunity to transfer to a partner institution and receive the same benefits of the Teach-Out program.

Wittenberg representatives will be attending the official Teach-Out Partner Fair on NDC's campus on March 13.

“Wittenberg University extends our sympathy to all those impacted by the closure announcement of Notre Dame College,” said Maribeth Stevens, vice president for enrollment management at Wittenberg. “We recognize the profound sadness and uncertainty this news brings to the academic community and beyond.

“Institutions like Notre Dame College play a crucial role in shaping futures, fostering innovation, and enriching society,” she continued. “In these difficult times, we reaffirm our commitment to higher education as a beacon of knowledge and a source of hope for future generations. We understand the importance of continuity in students’ educational journeys and are prepared to assist Notre Dame College students in maximizing credit transfers and securing competitive financial aid packages.”

Joining Wittenberg in being a Teach-Out Partner institution to date are Baldwin Wallace University, Cleveland State University, Hiram College, John Carroll University, Kent State University, Lake Erie College, Ursuline College, Walsh University, Mercyhurst University, and Mount Union.

Notre Dame College was founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame in 1922 as a small, private liberal arts institution nestled on 48 scenic, wooded acres in a suburb just 25 minutes from Cleveland. In that time, the school has helped equip students with personal and professional skills to assist them in chasing their passions and changing the world.
