Southern West Virginia Community College, Lindsey Wilson College partnership extended

The West Virginia Higher Education Commission has approved Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College’s partnership with Lindsey Wilson College for four more years.

Lindsey Wilson College is based in Columbia, Ky., and has 24 community campuses in Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, and Tennessee. Southern’s Logan campus houses its only community campus in West Virginia.

Lindsey Wilson College came to Southern’s Logan campus in August 2007. Since then, the two colleges have collaborated to offer students several 2+2 programs, including a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services and Counseling degree. The curriculum in this partnership is designed for Southern students who are completing their Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Applied Science. Students interested in earning their bachelor degree through this collaboration are required to have at least 60 college credit hours in order to apply.

Lindsey Wilson College will be hosting orientation for anyone who may be interested in learning more, or to begin the registration process. The event will be held August 8 on Southern’s Logan campus, in room 202 of Building A. The orientation will run from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Interested students may register with Tonia Marcum, Coordinator of Educational Outreach and Online Programs, at marcumt@lindsey.edu, or by phone at 304-896-7431. Lindsey Wilson College’s fall semester begins August 23.
