Teacher Education/Pre-Secondary/English Specialization 2+2
Associate in Applied Science
Transfer to West Liberty University

Note: The “2+2” term is used to refer to a transfer agreement through which a student completes an Associate degree at one institution and finishes a Bachelor degree at another institution. Due to individual student factors, part-time or full-time status, need for transitional education coursework, scheduling and availability of courses, or other factors, all students may not be able to complete these degrees in 2 (Associate) or 4 (Bachelor) years. The term “2+2” does not imply a guarantee that a student will be able to complete all requirements in 4 years.

Further, 2+2 articulation agreements contain very specific requirements which have been agreed upon and approved by the administration and faculty at both institutions. Because of this, petitions for course substitutions will not usually be considered or approved to allow a student to graduate under a 2+2 program.
Students completing this option will receive an Associate in Applied Science degree from West Virginia Northern. Upon completing the additional credit hours required at WLU, they will receive a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Teacher Education with an English specialization.

Students successfully completing and receiving an AAS degree under the 2+2 agreement with WLU in Teacher Education w/ an English specialization should be able to:

To be admitted to the WLU program, students must:

*Although a cumulative GPA of 2.0 meets requirements for graduation at WVNCC, students who do not meet the GPA (or other special) requirements at the transfer institution for admission to this baccalaureate program may not be admitted to the program until they are able to meet those requirements. Students should consult with an advisor at the transfer institution early in their program to check on this, and other requirements for admission to the baccalaureate program.

Students are encouraged to meet with members of the Teacher Education and English faculty at WLU early
in their program of study at WVNCC to obtain information and advising concerning the program. Consult your WVNCC advisor for further information.
