An admission agreement between New River Community and Technical College and West Virginia University will make it easier for students to continue their education.

“This is a new and clear path for New River CTC students to obtain their career goals and increase their earning potential by transitioning easily into four-year programs after completing their associate degrees,” said New River CTC President Dr. L. Marshall Washington.

Under the new agreement New River CTC graduates in good standing who maintained at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) in their associate of arts or associate of science program are guaranteed admission to WVU. Students transferring to specific programs must meet the program prerequisites, GPA and other criteria for program admission.

“This agreement provides a seamless transfer process, allowing for a successful transition of New River CTC students to WVU,” explained WVU Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management Stephen Lee. “We are excited about our partnership with New River CTC and welcome these students to WVU to continue their educational journey.”
