BEAVER, WV (WOAY)- New River Community and Technical College and Glenville State College signed an agreement yesterday making it easier for students who earn an associate degree to earn their bachelor’s degree.

Under the new agreement, New River CTC students who maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) are guaranteed admission to Glenville State. Students transferring must meet the same prerequisites, GPA and other admission criteria when applying to Glenville State programs. The two institutions will work collaboratively to admit students and facilitate the process of admissions.

The agreement becomes effective immediately.

“New River CTC is committed to providing accessible, affordable, quality education to our region,” New River CTC President Dr. L. Marshall Washington said. “This agreement makes the process of continuing education easier for our students and supports our mission by giving students another opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree close to where they live and work.”

“This agreement symbolizes a shared and renewed attitude of cooperation and collaboration that will benefit all of West Virginia. We see this agreement as only a beginning of future partnering opportunity,” Glenville State President Dr. Tracy Pellett said.

The two schools have a history of cooperation in southern West Virginia serving students in Nicholas County.

New River Community and Technical College serves nine counties in southeastern West Virginia from the Greenbrier Valley Campus (Lewisburg), Mercer County Campus (Princeton), Nicholas County Campus (Summersville) and Raleigh County Campus (Beaver/Beckley).
