Alderson Broaddus University and BridgeValley Community and Technical College entered into an articulation agreement on January 25 guaranteeing admission to students choosing to transfer from BridgeValley to Alderson Broaddus.
“BridgeValley is pleased to enter into this new partnership with Alderson Broaddus,” said BridgeValley President Dr. Eunice Bellinger. “In addition to providing career technical opportunities, we want to ensure our transfer students are set up for success and can seamlessly transition from our college to a university. This new partnership intends to provide our students with even more opportunities to continue their education in West Virginia.”
The agreement will provide admission into the university for students graduating with an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Applied Science degree from BridgeValley, provided the student has a transferable grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 and is in good standing. Any college-level courses completed by a student at BridgeValley are eligible for transfer to Alderson Broaddus, but will be capped at 72 hours of lower-division units and students must complete a minimum of 30 units at the university. All transfer students must meet the same prerequisite, GPA and other admission criteria for the programs in which they apply. International students are also eligible to take advantage of the agreement.
“We’re delighted to partner with BridgeValley and welcome their students to our AB family,” said Alderson Broaddus President Dr. Tim Barry. “AB’s focus is always on the student. Our goal in partnering with community and technical colleges is to streamline the pathway for students to graduate with a high-quality degree that prepares them to be well-rounded, responsible citizens ready for the workforce.”
BridgeValley Community and Technical College serves a six-county region including Fayette, Raleigh, Nicholas, Clay, Putnam, and Kanawha counties. The college operates two campuses in Montgomery and South Charleston, along with the addition of the new Advanced Technology Center.
