Olds College will now be offering both the first and second years of MacEwan University’s Bachelor of Science program. For students who enrol in this transfer program, they will now be able to take the first two years in Olds. The second year will be available here, in Olds, starting in September 2014.

“This is a great opportunity for students to pursue their education in a local setting as they get used to post-secondary life before transferring to MacEwan to finish their degree” says Tanya McDonald, Dean for the School of Agriculture at Olds College.
To further the mission of Campus Alberta in providing accessible, affordable, and quality learning opportunities for Albertans, Olds College and MacEwan University will grow their partnership.

“We have both seen the success of offering the first year of our Bachelor of Science program at Olds College, and that made it an easy decision to expand our partnership with Olds College and provide the second year of the Bachelor of Science degree program at Olds,” stated Dr. Pat Sullivan, Associate Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science, MacEwan University

This partnership is made possible through the active participation of Olds College and Red Deer College in Campus Alberta Central, which makes this program offering with MacEwan University possible.
Campus Alberta Central provides rural learners in Central Alberta with new and unique opportunities to pursue their education in a local setting.  Visit to explore all the courses and programs offered.

“We are extremely proud to provide programs in such a collaborative effort,” adds Jean Madill, Executive Director for Campus Alberta Central.  “Our learners, along with the community, are the true winners with the addition of the second year studies of the Bachelor of Science degree program.”
