Brunswick Community College signed an agreement with North Carolina Wesleyan College that will help associate degree graduates pursue a bachelor’s degree.
Through the Memorandum of Understanding, Wesleyan will offer some courses on the BCC campus. Students will have the opportunity to take online classes through Wesleyan and graduates who are at least 22 years old with a GPA of 2.0 will receive automatic acceptance into Wesleyan.
“Working with our college partner to serve this rural region has been delightful,” Brunswick Community College President Susanne Adams said in a news release. “Our students are eager to continue their education and this is a great opportunity for them.”
Sharon Thompson, vice president of academic and student affairs for BCC, said she expects the program to start as early as the fall semester of 2014.
“We have a good plan in place administratively to help transfer and support the needs of students at Brunswick Community College,” Thompson said.
A Wesleyan admissions and advising coordinator will be on the campus of BCC to assist previous graduates and soon-to-be BCC graduates.
“This agreement opens the door for North Carolina Wesleyan to have a real impact in Brunswick County,” Jim Gray, president of Wesleyan, said in the release. “We have outstanding programs to support this initiative, and I am looking forward to a productive relationship.”
