WWU, North Central Missouri College sign agreement

A new agreement between William
Woods University and North Central Missouri College will streamline
the transfer process
for NCMC students who wish to
obtain a Bachelor of Social Work degree at WWU.

This agreement will provide
students who complete an Associate of
Arts degree at North Central Missouri College with a two-year
plan to earn their bachelor’s
in social work
from William Woods University. The plan outlines several courses required of
social work majors that are offered
at NCMC.
“I am really pleased that William
Woods will be an option for
aspiring social work majors, since not every
institution has that program,”
said Dr. Tom
Frankman, associate dean of academic
services at WWU.
Both institutions have agreed to provide student support
services such as admissions, academic advising, library access and technical
support to make the transition from one institution to the other as smooth as possible.
“We here at NCMC are
very pleased to have this agreement with William Woods. Meeting the transfer needs
of our students is important to us, and we look forward to
working with William Woods in the future,”
said Kristi Weldon, advising coordinator at North Central Missouri College.
North Central Missouri College, located
in Trenton, Mo.,
offers a variety of associate’s
degrees, career programs and career certificates. They strive to give their students
small class sizes and unique
opportunities to connect with other educational programs and learn from
hands-on experiences in the workplace.
“I think this agreement is a very positive thing. Our social
work program here at Woods is
perfect for this type of transfer because students
can get their associate’s
degree at their local college and then
transfer here and get their bachelor’s
degree in social work in two short years,”
said Dr. Elizabeth
Wilson, director of the social work program at WWU.
