DSLCC, Bluefield State College Business School Sign Articulation Agreement

 
Clifton Forge, VA (Oct. 3, 2018) - Dabney S. Lancaster Community College and Bluefield State College, a four-year college located in Bluefield, WV, have signed a formal articulation agreement allowing students from DSLCC to transfer to Bluefield’s W. Paul Cole, Jr., School of Business.

The agreement provides a pathway for DSLCC graduates who earn any of the following two-year degrees to transfer to Bluefield’s business school to work toward a four-year business degree: Associate of Arts and Science Degree in Business Administration; Associate of Arts and Science Degree in Business Administration with a Specialization in Business Foundations; or an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Management.

“We are pleased to be able to expand our partnerships across our regions,” shared Dr. Rainone. “This type of collaborative effort continues to open doors of opportunity for DSLCC students, which is our first priority.”

Officially signing the agreement on October 1 on the DSLCC campus in Clifton Forge were Bluefield State College President Dr. Marsha Krotseng and DSLCC President Dr. John Rainone. Also present for the brief signing ceremony were two representatives from the W. Paul Cole, Jr., School of Business at Bluefield: Geoff Hunter, Associate Professor, and Dr. Steve Bourne, Professor and Interim Dean. DSLCC Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Ben Worth was also on hand.

“I am very excited to see this opportunity move forward. Two-plus-two opportunities for community college students are a benefit to students and four-year institutions alike. Students can continue their studies and complete a baccalaureate degree in as little as four years,” added Dr. Worth.

Bluefield offers three major degrees in business: a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration; a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy; and a Bachelor of Science in Health Services.

Bluefield State College’s President, Dr. Marsha Krotseng, added, “Bluefield State College is excited about our partnership with Dabney S. Lancaster Community College because it gives students the opportunity to build on the success they have already achieved and obtain a bachelor’s degree at home. We look forward to maintaining a strong relationship between our two institutions for the benefit of DSLCC graduates.”

The agreement goes into effect immediately.
