VHCC students learn about four year degree opportunities
Students at Virginia Highlands Community College had the chance to learn about opportunities to continue their education after graduation.
Representatives from 18 four-year colleges stopped by the campus to help students figure out what classes they should take and how they can transfer credits to the college of their choice.
VHCC has agreements with several four year institutions even across state lines which makes it easy to transfer.
"They can go in in junior standing into that four year school with their associates degree from here and they already have a junior standing at that four year school. It saves them a lot of money to come here and then go on to the four year school," VHCC Transfer Counselor Karen Kilgore said.
Kilgore says students in the nursing or business curriculum are good examples of those who would transfer.
