West Virginia University at Parkersburg has entered into an articulation agreement with Pierpont Community and Technical College to provide a seamless pathway from an associate to bachelor degree.
Under the agreement, Pierpont students who have completed an associate of applied science in computer information technology are eligible to apply for WVU Parkersburg’s bachelor of applied technology program. This agreement was created to help meet West Virginia’s needs for advanced training in the areas of computer and networking technology.
WVU Parkersburg will work with Pierpont to provide flexible courses to meet the needs of students in Pierpont’s service area.
“As state institutions it is our goal to provide an educated and well-trained workforce to meet the needs of employers,” said Dr. Rhonda Tracy, interim president for WVU Parkersburg. “We are excited to partner with Pierpont to provide this unique opportunity that allows students to apply previous associate degree credits toward a bachelor degree in this high-demand program.”
