Emory & Henry College and New River Community College sign Concurrent Admission Agreement

Posted by Allison Galloway

This agreement will provide a pathway for students enrolled in associate of arts and sciences transfer pathway programs to earn four-year degrees at Emory & Henry. 

The Concurrent Admission Agreement will support students to take one class at Emory & Henry at the 300 level or higher (3-4 credits) free of tuition during the second year at New River Community College or summer session, prior to full-time enrollment at Emory & Henry. New River Community College students will start to have access to programs at Emory & Henry as well, such as academic and financial aid advising in preparation for their continuation at Emory & Henry, and the use of the library, cafeteria, athletic and theatre events when they are currently enrolled.

Also included is the ability for NRCC graduates to seamlessly transfer to Emory & Henry without extra applications or fees. Students will be eligible to receive financial aid awards upon enrollment at Emory & Henry, among other benefits such as an ID card for library use, athletic and theatre events, discounted meals on campus, and more.

“Our goal is to provide the most affordable options and pathways toward higher education in our region,” said Emory & Henry College President John Wells. “The high-quality education afforded at New River Community College makes a seamless transition to Emory & Henry to finish a four-year degree while saving on tuition costs. We aim to be the transfer college of choice.” 

“As a graduate of Emory & Henry College myself, I am especially proud of this partnership that ensures continuing education for our students at NRCC,” says President Pat Huber. “This new partnership focuses on student engagement  with both institutions from the beginning, and those important campus connections will ultimately lead to their success.”

For more information on concurrent admission, now underway for Fall 2020, talk to an admission counselor or advisor at either college to share interest. 

The virtual signing took place on Thursday, July 30th.
