Criminal Justice 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 WVNCC and finishes a Bachelor’s degree at another institution. Because of 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 this degree in two (Associate’s) or four (Bachelor’s) years. The term "2+2" does not imply a guarantee that a student will be able to complete all requirements in four years
