Top Stories

WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – It was a decision that was years in the making, and will effect most college students.

Wheeling University and Belmont College signed an Articulation Agreement Thursday morning.

This agreement means a number of things for current and future students.

First, a faster and affordable transition for two-year students to their next degree platform, cutting out any unnecessary classes. It also provides a smoother transfer.

This partnership also provides options to non-traditional students while making a lasting relationship that will benefit all students.

It will also take a burden off the staff.

For the staff, they don’t have to spend extra time trying to match a dozen different degrees and different universities. For the students, which is the most important part, it’s seamless. It’s more affordable this way and it’s local.

Dr. Paul Gasparro – Belmont College President

It’s interesting to see higher education working together to benefit the student, and I think that benefits our community and our nation as a whole.

Ginny Favede – Wheeling University President

Wheeling University officials said this will help as they are rebuilding programs.

The agreement will officially begin for the Fall semester of 2020.
