Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College Partners with Southern New Hampshire University
Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College and Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) have partnered to allow Eastern students receiving grades of "C-" or better to transfer all academic coursework into SNHU.
"Articulation agreements allow Eastern students additional pathways to attain their educational and career goals," said Eastern’s President Dr. Charles Terrell. "Because we’re in a rural area, our students are often not afforded the same opportunities as students attending colleges in urban areas. Having a partnership with a school offering multiple online degrees like Southern New Hampshire University provides our students more control over their studies. We believe this partnership will aid not only our students in their pursuit of a bachelor’s degree, but our faculty and staff, who can also benefit from this agreement."
As part of the agreement, Eastern students will be afforded the opportunity to transfer up to 90 units towards their bachelor’s degree. Additionally, eligible Eastern graduates, employees and immediate family members of employees will receive a 10 percent tuition reduction for all SNHU’s online programs and be eligible for an SNHU application fee waiver.
"Community college graduates often look for opportunities to continue their education by transferring credits to a bachelor’s degree program," said SNHU Vice President of Strategic Partnerships William Hartglass. "Partnerships, like this one with Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College, make it easy by creating a direct pathway from an associate degree to a bachelor’s degree. We are always eager to work with community colleges that are looking to help students find ways to continue their education and achieve their personal and professional goals. This gives us the opportunity to share our resources and further our commitment to students."
The agreement between the two schools was effective on March 2nd. Learn more about Eastern’s transfer and partnership programs at http://www.easternwv.edu/academics/transferpartnership-programs.
