GALLATIN, Tenn. (AP) - Students at Volunteer State Community College will be able to easily transfer to Western Kentucky University under a new dual admissions agreement between the two schools.
Leaders from both schools will sign the new agreement at the community college campus in Gallatin on Thursday.
Students who earn a 2-year degree at Volunteer State can enroll at WKU to pursue a bachelor's degree and are advised by counselors at both schools to create an easy transition between schools. The program ensures that students' credits will transfer to WKU and can save students time and money.
The program is applicable to Vol State students who want to pursue any academic areas at WKU.
