Students at Volunteer State Community College, who wish to enroll at WKU after earning their associate degree, will be able to transfer with ease, thanks to a new dual admissions agreement between the two schools.
Dr. Gary A. Ransdell, WKU president, and Dr. Jerry Faulkner, president of Volunteer State Community College, will sign the agreement at 11 a.m. Thursday (Feb. 14) in the Great Hall of the Ramer Administration Building at Vol State’s campus, 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin, Tenn. The signing will be followed by brief remarks from the presidents and a reception. Parking for the signing ceremony will be available in front of the Ramer Building.
A dual admissions student first enrolls at Vol State. When they complete the two-year degree, they then enroll at WKU to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Students under the agreement are advised by both Vol State and WKU, creating a seamless transition from Vol State to WKU. A Vol State student can begin the process to enter into a dual admissions agreement at any time while enrolled at Vol State, however to ensure that courses will earn credit in transfer, students are encouraged to start the program immediately. The dual admissions agreement is applicable for Vol State students wanting to pursue any academic area at WKU. Dual admissions programs can provide a clear path for students from community college to university, often saving students time and money.
