FAIRFIELD, Al – Wallace Community College and Miles College have partnered to create scholarship opportunities and pathways to earning a bachelor’s degree. The institutions’ leaders signed an articulation agreement during a Thursday, February 2 ceremony at Wallace Community College Selma Campus (3000 Earl Goodwin Pkwy, Selma, AL 36703).
The agreement has four components, including a collaborative and seamless transfer process, scholarship eligibility, reverse transfer credit, and student services.
“This initiative makes it easier for our students to progress and become successful. Initiatives as such help tear down the silos in education,” said Dr. James M. Mitchell, President of Wallace Community College.
Wallace Community College students will be considered for admission to Miles College after earning an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science with up to a maximum of 64 semester hours transferring. Additionally, Wallace Community College students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0.
The new partnership will provide reciprocal privileges for using Miles College’s Library Resource Center, College, and Career Center and admission to athletic events. There are also opportunities for advising from both Wallace Community College and Miles College.
“We have to reimagine education; we have to meet students where they are and allow them opportunities to prepare them for that Global society. We should be building our enrollment at every institution in the state because we have to ensure we are preparing our students for this society and equipping them to propel our state forward. We are very excited to sign this memorandum of understanding with Wallace Community College and look forward to the partnership ahead.” said Bobbie Knight, J.D., President of Miles College.
