This option is designed for students preparing for transfer to Franciscan University of Steubenville to complete work on baccalaureate degrees in Business Administration. Students should consult with their advisor regarding requirements.

In addition to the overall competencies of the Business Administration program, upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to transfer into a baccalaureate program.

Note: 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.
