Western Kentucky University signs admission agreement with community college
Western Kentucky University and Jefferson Community and Technical College have signed a joint admissions agreement.
A statement issued jointly by the schools on Wednesday says the agreement will allow students to be admitted to both institutions at the same time, which makes it easier for them to obtain a bachelor’s degree at Western after attending JCTC.
Officials say they hope the agreement helps to expand options for students seeking a degree, bolster the number of degrees earned and reduce the time it takes to obtain a degree.
Students admitted jointly will have access to services at Western and be assigned an adviser from the university.
WKU President Gary Ransdell says it is the ninth agreement the school has signed with a Kentucky Community and Technical College System campus.
