Information Meeting for VI Students

Friday, June 20, 2014

Bluefield College is anxious to help Virginia Intermont students through the transition period from VI to your new institution of choice. We hope you will choose Bluefield! In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, we have created an event just for VI Interdisciplinary Studies/Education students.

We invite you to our campus for an information meeting. This meeting will serve to clarify which credits will transfer toward your degree at BC and which requirements remain in order to attain your teaching license.

The meeting will begin with a general overview at 10:00 AM in the School of Education (basement floor of Easley Library - view Campus Map). Group meetings will begin at 11:00 AM, allowing for transcript reviews and the opportunity to address individual needs.

Lunch will be provided at noon. Brenda Workman, Online Admissions Counselor; Timothy Hegerich, Transfer Counselor; Jennifer Lamb, Assistant Registrar and Assessment Counselor; and Dr. Donna Watson, Dean of the School of Education; will be available throughout the afternoon to answer any additional questions.

Please register for this event if you are interested in attending. The BC Family would love to meet you and help lead you through this process.
