Piedmont Community College (PCC) recently signed an agreement to continue to support academic and career growth for students and help qualified graduates transfer to Western Governors University (WGU). The partnership aims to provide PCC graduates personalized learning pathways to higher education through WGU’s online university and their applicable affiliates.

“PCC’s partnership with Western Governors University gives students the opportunity to grow where they’re most comfortable,” Dr. Senegal, President, Piedmont Community College said. “With four options for career growth as well as programs based on individual learning, our graduates can complete their future degrees at their individual pace and thrive when they join the workforce.”

This agreement is focused on helping students transfer credits and pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree, in one of WGU’s four Colleges: Business, Information Technology, Health Professions, and Teacher Education.

WGU is a private, non-profit institution that offers competency-based programs that are focused on learning rather than time, where students can progress through courses as soon as they demonstrate a clear understanding and mastery of the material. Their online programs are mentor-supported and designed to fit into student’s home and work schedules, with the goal of helping those students prosper in their career.

“We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with Piedmont Community College,” said Ben Coulter, Ed.D., Chancellor of WGU North Carolina. “Working together, we can reduce barriers to postsecondary attainment, support students earning high-demand degrees, and enable career pathways that provide a higher quality of life for them and their families.”

Graduates from PCC are also eligible to apply for the WGU Community College Partner Scholarship, which awards recipients $2,500 ($625 per semester up to 4 terms) based on success in their program of study.
