The initiative will allow students to jointly enroll at both institutions, giving them access to more resources and create a smooth transfer process.
“The heart of the agreement creates the foundation for future students to begin their higher education journey at Bowling Green Technical College and successfully transfer to Western Kentucky University,” said Bowling Green Technical College President Dr. Nathan Hodges.
“WKU is pleased to partner with Bowling Green Technical College and with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System on this important initiative to ensure that Kentucky’s students have the best possible opportunity to attain a bachelor’s degree,” said WKU President Gary Ransdell. “Joint admission will provide a full range of services from both our institutions to students and will help ease the transfer process. BGTC students who are jointly admitted will be on track to complete a four-year degree from the first day and can begin to take advantage of student services and activities that are available to all WKU students.”
Dr. Hodges added: “Our institutions are committed to educational attainment by improving transfer pathways through student engagement, collaborative advising, and mutually supportive academic and student services.”
WKU has similar agreements with Henderson Community College, Hopkinsville Community College, Madisonville Community College and Owensboro Community and Technical College of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
