WYTHEVILLE, Va. — A new partnership between a West Virginia college and Virginia community college will allow business administration, business management and business accounting students to transfer seamlessly between the two institutions.

Officials with Bluefield State College’s W. Paul Cole Jr. School of Business and Wytheville Community College’s Division of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Business Information Systems signed three business program articulation agreements Tuesday permitting WCC students to more easily transfer into Bluefield State business programs.

Jim Nelson, director of media relations at Bluefield State College, said the agreement will provide benefits including reduction in tuition rates for WCC students, distance learning opportunities, course video streams and online classes. Nelson said Bluefield State currently partners with at least six other local community colleges in addition to WCC.
