Successful Transfer of the EducationUSA Turkmenistan Cohorts Alumni

Six EducationUSA cohorts’ alumni from Turkmenistan are completing their Associates degree at Snow College and successfully transferring to 4-year institutions to complete their Bachelor’s degree in the US. In fact, the “2+2” pathway is very popular in Turkmenistan and both students and parents find it to be the most affordable and viable way in getting a US degree. As a result, four of these cohorts’ alumni are going to pursue their Bachelor’s degree at Northwest Missouri State University (NMSU), whereas others are going into Dixie State University, Southern Utah University and Utah Valley University in Fall 2020 with generous scholarship awards.

Further, Dr. Phillip Hull, Director at International Involvement Center notes that the NMSU “has a transfer agreement with Snow College”, and shares this as a great example of a successful collaboration and partnership between the US HEIs and EducationUSA. Snow College and Northwest Missouri State University were both among participating institutions at the EducationUSA Fall 2019 Central Asia Tour.
