Penn Highlands & West Virginia University Partner On Articulation Agreement Creating 23 Pathway Options

Posted September 12, 2023 at 12:13 pm

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College has announced the signing of a new 2+2 articulation agreement with West Virginia University.

This agreement allows Penn Highlands graduates to transfer their associate degrees to a selection of 23 bachelor’s degree options and complete the final two years at West Virginia University or any of its affiliate schools.

These options include choices such as Anthropology, Animal & Nutrition Sciences, Sport & Exercise Psychology, Environmental & Energy Resources Management, Agribusiness Management, and Advertising/Public Relations, along with a multitude of traditional majors.

“We’re very excited about this new agreement because it features options for students that we haven’t had before,” stated Michelle Stumpf, Pennsylvania Highlands Dean of Enrollment Services and Registrar. “We are glad that this option is so open for our students, being that every pathway takes almost, if not all, of the credits from our college’s associate degree programs.”

Just south of the Pennsylvania border, West Virginia University provides our Somerset Center students with a top-tier transfer option due to its close proximity.

West Virginia University is the first four-year school in West Virginia to sign an agreement with Penn Highlands Community College.
