W.Va. State, New River CTC Enter Transfer Agreement


Some students at New River Community and Technical College who complete two-year degrees can transfer into a four-year program at West Virginia State University.

Officials from both schools announced an agreement Tuesday involving online and evening classes at West Virginia State.

It lets New River graduates in business administration, law enforcement and corrections complete their bachelor’s degrees in business or criminal justice.

School officials say the program gives students the choice to travel to the West Virginia State campus in Institute or take classes through New River’s Raleigh County campus.
