West Virginia State University and Blue Ridge CTC Sign Transfer Agreement

INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) and Blue Ridge Community and Technical College met today, Wednesday, October 28, 2015, to sign a new articulation agreement for students seeking a degree in Criminal Justice.

As part of the transfer agreement signed with West Virginia State University, Blue Ridge students completing the Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice can transfer seamlessly into a baccalaureate degree in Criminal Justice with West Virginia State University. These types of transfer agreements assist students in investing in an affordable education by completing two years with a Community College before transferring to a four-year institution. This new agreement allows for a partnership between two cost effective educational options for students pursuing degrees in the state of West Virginia.

“We are excited to help enable Blue Ridge CTC students to find their passion and achieve their dreams of a better life through education,” said Dr. Brian O. Hemphill, WVSU President. “Our Criminal Justice program has a long history of opening doors and creating opportunities for graduates. We look forward to welcoming these students into the State family.”

Blue Ridge CTC and WVSU are continuing to work on additional transfer agreements, which include programs in Business and Business Administration. These articulation agreements ensure students have accurate information regarding required courses and the time needed to complete additional degree programs.

“We are excited to sign this agreement with West Virginia State University,” said Dr. Peter Checkovich, Founding President of Blue Ridge CTC. “Blue Ridge CTC continually identifies partnerships, such as this agreement, that establishes an ease of transfer for our students.”

Blue Ridge Community and Technical College offers more than 50 associate degree and certificate programs, as well as workforce development training.  Blue Ridge Community and Technical College is conveniently located on Route 45 West past the Commons Center, at 13650 Apple Harvest Drive.
