Removing barriers to higher education, 2nd edition

This is the second edition of a few exciting news releases on the activities Apollos is undertaking to create new opportunities for students in the US to study abroad as well as for non-US students to study with Apollos and increase their knowledge and gain an American degree.

 

Dr. Scott Eidson and the rest of the Apollos team visited the Foon Yew High School in Johor, Malaysia on October 30, 2018. The team met with Mr. Goh Kim Meng, Head of Further Studies Counselling Department. Mr. Goh and Dr. Scott discussed the possibility of Foon Yew graduates applying to study with Apollo University after graduation. Mr. Goh explained the types of students that graduate from Foon Yew and that some of the students desire to study in Malaysia for their bachelor’s degree program instead of traveling overseas. Therefore, for these students, Apollos would be a good fit.

 

Apollos will continue to work with Mr. Goh and Foon Yew High School and plan to attend future college day fairs to meet with students and parents.

Apollos is proud to be an educational partner with Foon Yew High School and look forward to welcoming Malaysian students into the Apollos family.

For more Information and details of the visit, please see https://apollos.edu/Blog/List/Default.aspx or call 406-604-4300.

Dr. Paul Eidson visited The Czech Republic during October to discuss online educational opportunities with Dr. Petr Pacher and Ms. Michaela Slavíková of essential college (EC). During his visit, Apollos and EC signed an Articulation Agreement which will allow Czech undergraduate students to attend EC on-ground and later attend Apollos online. This agreement will be presented to DEAC for their review and then will be implemented between the two institutions.

 

Apollos is proud to be an educational partner with EC and look forward to welcoming Czech students into the Apollos family.

2018 Graduation Memories



2018 Graduation Guest Speaker:


2018 Graduation Guest Speaker Mr. Alex Striler presented the graduates with a reflective and thought-provoking message. He stated, "Each graduate needs to follow one's inner voice and to follow their heart instead of following the money".







As we begin 2018, I wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a very Happy New Year from Apollos University. It is an honor and a privilege to serve as Apollos president during these exciting times of growth and achievement for our university. I’m happy to report that 2017 saw Apollos settle into our new home in Great Falls, MT and we couldn’t be happier with our amazing office staff! My hope for the New Year is that Apollos continues to serve as the Gateway to Your Future whether as a student or alumni; as an administrator, faculty or staff; or as any combination thereof. Wishing everyone the very best in 2018! Go Apollos Bisons!

Dr. Scott Eidson
