WKCTC, SIU reach transfer agreement

Staff report

Two new agreements between West Kentucky Community & Technical College and Southern Illinois University Carbondale will streamline the path for WKCTC graduates to transfer into SIU technical degree programs, according to Public Relations Director Janett Blythe.

The two schools recently signed two agreements that will allow WKCTC's associate in applied science degrees in automotive technology and in general/occupational technical studies to transfer into specific bachelor of science degrees at SIU Carbondale.

The option will be available to all students in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, Blythe said.

With WKCTC associate in arts and associate in science programs, the school can provide parallel courses to meet transfer requirements for the first two years of a bachelor's degree, according to Vice President of Academic Affairs Tena Payne.

"In today's marketplace the workforce is in dire need of individuals with technical skills as well as the ability to lead projects and drive the entrepreneurial business environment," she said.

Rachel Goatley, coordinator of transfer advising at WKCTC, emphasized that the cooperative effort of both schools ensures the most efficient transfer possible, will keep time and cost at a minimum, and allows students to receive a quality education.
