Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Transfer to West Liberty University

Major Code: 127

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 developmental education coursework, scheduling and availability of courses, or other factors, all students may not be able to complete these degrees in two (Associate) or four (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 West Liberty University, they will receive a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration with a specialization in Computer Information Systems.

Students successfully completing and receiving an A.A.S. degree under the 2+2 agreement with WLU should be able to:

  • Implement the full accounting cycle for various types of organizations
  • Market and promote products 
  • Use quantitative reasoning to solve problems in the business and accounting fields
  • Analyze how local and global economies affect business management 
  • Use basic application software in the field of business 
  • Demonstrate managerial decision making 

Students are encouraged to meet with members of the faculty at WLU early in their program of study at WVNCC to obtain information and advising concerning the 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.
