KUALA LUMPUR, June 10 (Bernama) -- Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL)’s American Degree Transfer Program (ADTP) celebrated its 10th anniversary in March 2024. This significant event was attended by representatives from University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Messiah University, and EducationUSA Malaysia. The unveiling of a new backdrop in MCKL’s Main Lobby highlighted the enduring collaboration between MCKL and its U.S. partners.

This milestone is not just a celebration of a decade of accomplishments but a testament to the strong partnerships MCKL has established with esteemed U.S. universities. Over the past ten years, ADTP has grown into a vital academic pathway, offering MCKL students’ opportunities to pursue higher education in the U.S.

Throughout the years, MCKL's partner universities have provided numerous exclusive and merit-based scholarships to ADTP students transferring to the United States. These scholarships recognize academic excellence and enhance students' resumes, for further opportunities. Recently, two ADTP students received exclusive scholarships: Lee Rou was awarded the Moey-Phipps Scholarship of Distinction 2024 from Messiah University, and Andree Lin Yiew Xuan received the UWL-MCKL Exclusive Scholarship 2024 to pursue Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

The celebration, themed A Decade of Growth and Community, highlighted the program's strong alumni network. ADTP graduates have succeeded in various fields worldwide, showcasing the program's effectiveness in preparing students for the global landscape. Notably, two ADTP alumni are now working at Microsoft, and others have pursued advanced degrees at prestigious institutions like Duke University and Wheaton College.

During the celebration, Ms Veronica Yap from Messiah University praised the ADTP’s program structure and its role in student success at American universities. Ms Heather Pearson from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse commended the ADTP for offering the American Dream to Malaysian students and highlighted the decade of collaborative efforts that have promoted educational and cultural exchange.

ADTP has achieved numerous milestones, establishing partnerships with over 50 universities. These collaborations have facilitated seamless transfers for ADTP students and provided financial support through exclusive scholarships and merit-based opportunities, easing the financial burden of pursuing undergraduate degrees in the United States. Together, they aim to continue empowering the next generation of leaders, ensuring that the legacy of ADTP at MCKL endures in the years to come.
