BCC Signs Memorandum of Understanding with NC Wesleyan
SUPPLY, N.C. – Brunswick Community College (BCC) was the site on September 26th for the signing of an agreement with North Carolina Wesleyan College that will assist associate degree graduates in expanding their educational opportunities into a Bachelor’s degree.
With the Memorandum of Understanding in place, NC Wesleyan will offer a number of courses on the campus of Brunswick Community College. BCC students will have the opportunity to take online classes through NC Wesleyan and graduates, who are at least 22 years old with a GPA of 2.0 will receive automatic acceptance at NC Wesleyan.
BCC President Susanne Adams welcomed the Wesleyan College contingent to the campus. “Working with our College partner to serve this rural region has been delightful”, President Adams said. “Our students are eager to continue their education and this is a great opportunity for them.”
Dr. Sharon Thompson, Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs for BCC, says she expects the program to start as soon as the fall semester of 2014.
“We have a good plan in place administratively to help transfer and support the needs of students at Brunswick Community College,” Dr. Thompson said.
Jim Gray, NC Wesleyan President, signed agreements on behalf of the Wesleyan College.
“I would like to thank President Adams and her administrative team for their excellent work on this agreement,” Gray said. “This agreement opens the door for North Carolina Wesleyan to have a real impact in Brunswick County. We have outstanding programs to support this initiative, and I am looking forward to a productive relationship.”
A NC Wesleyan Admissions and Advising Coordinator will be on the campus of Brunswick Community College to assist previous BCC graduates and soon-to-be BCC graduates.
