Copiah-Lincoln Community College and The University of West Alabama recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to further expand the partnership between the two institutions. The new agreement is meant to provide a collaborative and seamless concurrent enrollment and transfer process from Co-Lin to UWA for Co-Lin students who meet the identified criteria.

The initial bachelor’s degree programs to be offered for the seamless concurrent enrollment and transfer agreement are Integrated Marketing Communications with additional tracks in Graphic Design and Sports Management. Additional transfer options are available in Exercise Science, General Health Science and Comprehensive Health Sciences which continue with master’s degree options in Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physician Assistant.

“This incredible opportunity with the University of West Alabama opens many doors for our Co-Lin students to attend a quality, full-service university that is close to home, similar in size with exceptional, engaging, and empowering programs,” said Dean of Academic Instruction Dr. Stephanie Duguid. “Their innovative approaches and personal methods immediately connect and immerse students in their chosen fields.”
