Virginia students learn about programs at New River

Prospective students from Alleghany and Bath Counties in Virginia can enroll in select programs at New River Community and Technical College’s Greenbrier Valley Campus in Lewisburg under a reciprocity agreement with Dabney S. Lancaster Community College in Clifton Forge, VA.

An informal meeting was held in McCarthy Hall on the DSLCC campus on July 11, to give Virginia students a chance to learn more about programs available at New River.

Virginia students can enroll in degree programs in Corrections, Cosmetology and Medical Assisting, and in certificate programs in Nail Technology, Esthetics, Machine Technology, Medical Billing and Coding, and Paramedic.

Students from Greenbrier, Monroe and Pocahontas counties can enroll in degree programs at Dabney S. Lancaster including Culinary Arts and Management, Forestry Technology, Registered Nursing, Massage Therapy, Wind Turbine Service Technology and Hospitality and Tourism

“Normal financial aid policies and programs apply and are available to students in these programs,” Roger Griffith, dean of the New River Greenbrier Valley Campus noted. “Best of all, students from the designated counties in Virginia and West Virginia pay in-state tuition for the courses taken at the partner college, so they pay less for more options.”

For information on the classes and courses of study offered through the reciprocity agreement, telephone New River Community and Technical College Greenbrier Valley Campus at 304-647-6560 or Dabney S. Lancaster Community College at 540-863-2815 or toll free 877-733-7522.
