THE SHEPHERD/BRCTC PATHWAY TO CAREER SUCCESS PROGRAM
Pathway to Career Success
Shepherd University and Blue Ridge Community and Technical College (BRCTC) have collaborated to deliver a pathway to success by helping transition the individual with an associate's degree from BRCTC to a bachelor's degree at Shepherd.
The Pathway to Career Success program is an articulation agreement between Shepherd University and Blue Ridge Community and Technical College. This articulation provides BRCTC graduates with the opportunity to complete their bachelor's degree within two years (specified programs only).
*Students who do not have an A.A. or A.S. degree will have all of their community college course work earned with a grade of "C" or better evaluated in a course-by-course basis for acceptance by Shepherd University. These transfer credits will be applied, as appropriate, to the University's general studies requirements, major and minor requirements, and all other degree requirements as deemed appropriate by the University registrar.
