New River CTC signs new agreement with Glenville State

[BEAVER, W.Va.] Glenville State College and New River Community and Technical College officials have signed an articulation agreement designed to create a seamless transition for students who have earned an associate degree in business to receiving a bachelor’s degree.

Under the new agreement, New River CTC students who have completed the Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Management along with additional general education courses through New River CTC can build on their education to complete Glenville State’s baccalaureate degree program in Business Administration with a concentration in management.

Glenville State classes in the business administration program will be offered via a variety of delivery methods including in-seat instruction, hybrid courses, distance technology and online courses. Glenville State College’s in-seat courses and hybrid required courses will be taught on-site at New River CTC’s Nicholas County Campus in Summersville.

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.

“Partnering is important to us and we believe that this agreement will allow students to transfer seamlessly from New River to Glenville State. Not only does this increase the area to which we can provide degree programs, but it gives students in the New River service area an opportunity to easily complete their associate and baccalaureate degrees,” said Glenville State College President Dr. Tracy Pellett.

“We’re excited about this agreement as it exemplifies our mission as a college – to provide accessible, affordable, quality education,” said New River CTC President Dr. Bonny Copenhaver. “These partnerships help those in our communities gain additional education while strengthening the regional businesses’ access to well-qualified employees.”

The two schools have a history of cooperation in southern West Virginia serving students in Nicholas County and signed a guaranteed admissions agreement in 2018.
