MARTINSBURG, WV — The Shepherd University Martinsburg Center has scheduled an education fair on Tuesday, February 16, from 5-7 p.m. at the Greencastle Comfort Inn, 50 Pine Drive, Greencastle, Pennsylvania, which is located off I-81 Exit 3.
Adults, transfer students, undeclared high school seniors, or anyone interested in exploring the route to complete a Shepherd University bachelor’s or graduate degree may attend. Representatives from university admissions, financial aid, and academics will be available to answer questions about the acceptance process, program offerings, tuition discounts, grants, and much more.
A program director from the popular Regents Bachelor of Arts (R.B.A.) program will also be onsite. The R.B.A., which is designed for adults that already have work and family commitments, offers qualifying non-residents a three credit hour discount of up to a $1,200 for some online classes and those classes taught in Martinsburg.
“The Regents Bachelor of Arts allows adult learners who may have had some college, but never finished or who have military credits, to complete a bachelor’s degree,” said Beth Thomas, R.B.A. and continuing education program coordinator. “Many adults find that they need a bachelor’s degree to get promoted or to get a better job; the R.B.A. is a great option for degree completion.”
Information will also be available on Shepherdstown undergraduate programs and the M.B.A program offered in Martinsburg that includes some online courses. With concentrations designed to help with career advancement, the M.B.A. program offers high quality opportunities within innovative management, leadership, project management, organizational development, and human resources.
The open house will include refreshments. For directions or for more information, visit www.martinsburgcenter.info or call 304-263-3303.
