PHIL CAMPBELL - Reach University and Northwest-Shoals Community College have announced a partnership to provide every NW-SCC graduate a transparent and paid pathway to a bachelor’s degree and professional career through a program to overcome historic transfer, completion, and workforce alignment challenges.
In a first of its kind articulation agreement between an Alabama two-year college and Reach University, 100% of credits from nearly all available NW-SCC majors will transfer into Reach’s Liberal Studies Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). Rather than a traditional college campus, Reach will utilize local K-12 employers as the university learning place through its accredited apprenticeship degree program. All degree seekers will work as an employee in a northwest Alabama school while completing their job-embedded B.A., offering exposure into the field of teaching and the chance to pursue a teacher credential following degree completion.
