Birmingham-Southern, Wallace Community College – Dothan partner to improve transfer process

Dothan, Ala. – Birmingham-Southern College (BSC) and Wallace Community College (WCCD) in Dothan, Alabama, have signed an articulation agreement that will expedite the completion of a bachelor’s degree at BSC for WCCD students.

The agreement ensures that students who have earned associate’s degrees at WCCD can seamlessly continue their education at BSC. Those who have earned degrees in arts and sciences will have fulfilled Birmingham-Southern’s general education requirements with the exception of a class in writing reinforcement and a capstone course. The contract with Wallace Community College – Dothan is BSC’s twelfth articulation agreement.

“Birmingham-Southern is making the transfer process more efficient through articulation agreements. Now, students who started their education somewhere else can more easily transfer to BSC and complete their bachelors’ degree in our personalized academic environment,” President Daniel B. Coleman said.

This academic year, BSC welcomed 42 transfer students – many of whom came to BSC from a community college.

“We are grateful to President Daniel Coleman and his faculty and staff for their desire to partner with us and open new doors for our students,” said Dr. Linda C. Young, Wallace Community College – Dothan President. “It creates a seamless pathway for eligible WCCD graduates who want to continue their higher education with one of Alabama’s great private colleges. The partnership serves as an excellent example of the two institutions working together, keeping student success as a top priority.”
