WU-AAS Computer Information Technology Option

Computer Information Technology 2+2
Associate in Applied Science Degree
Transfer to Wheeling 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 are encouraged to meet with a member of the Computer Science faculty at WU early in their program of study at WVNCC to obtain information and counseling concerning the CSC program.

Academic Advisor(s): WH-Goeddel (A-L), Cornforth (M-Z); WT-Goeddel/Soly; NM-Goeddel/Slie

Students completing this option will receive an Associate in Applied Science degree from West Virginia Northern. Upon completing the additional credit hours required at Wheeling University, they will receive a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science. In addition to the WVNCC courses, applicants for admission to WU need to have an overall grade point average of 2.3 and meet other program admissions requirements of WU to be eligible under the 2+2 program.*

*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.
