Students will be able to pursue degrees at Salem University after beginning their college careers at West Virginia Northern Community College, thanks to a new guaranteed admission agreement signed between the two schools Thursday.

Under the new partnership, WVNCC graduates are guaranteed admission to Salem University upon successful completion of an associate degree, allowing them to seamlessly transfer credits from WVNCC.

“It’s a huge benefit to the students, especially those who are thinking about a four-year degree,” said WVNCC president Daniel Mosser. “They can start those first two years at Northern at a fraction of the cost, save about 40% over the cost of a bachelor’s degree, and they’re guaranteed, when they transfer to the four-year school, all of their credits go with them.

“It’s a way of saving quite a bit of money while staying local, living at home, working and taking classes at Northern before you go off to the university.”

Ken Knox, dean of Salem University’s school of business, said their university offers a number of programs, particularly criminal justice, business management and a doctorate program in business administration, as well as specialized fields such as esports management and sales force management.

“This is a great opportunity to provide continued support to (WVNCC) graduates and all learners in West Virginia,” stated Salem University Interim President Karen Ferguson. “The Salem University community is looking forward to building this relationship designed to support the needs of individuals, organizations and the standard of education in West Virginia.”
