March 27, 2020
EUREKA, Ill. – Eureka College has partnered with MacMurray College to offer transfer options to students affected by MacMurray’s impending closing.
Eureka College President Dr. Jamel Santa Cruze Wright and MacMurray College President Beverly Rodgers have formally signed an agreement that will give MacMurray students the option to finish their degrees at Eureka.
As part of the agreement, Eureka will expedite the admissions process, waive the application fee, accept MacMurray students from all programs and, most significantly, meet out-of-pocket tuition costs of current MacMurray students.
Located in Eureka, Illinois, and chartered in 1855, Eureka College cultivates excellence in learning, service and leadership while providing students uniquely personalized and custom educational opportunities.
Originally founded by abolitionist members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Eureka College holds the unique distinction of being the first college in Illinois and only the third in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis. The College, which is located on nearly 70 wooded acres in central Illinois is the smallest of only 23 colleges and universities to ever award a bachelor’s degree to a future President of the United States.
