Morgan Named Director of Alumni Relations

by | Sep 15, 2022

Bluefield, VA A familiar and friendly face to the Bluefield University campus, Sherelle Morgan, a 2021 MBA graduate, joined the Office of Institutional Advancement as the Director of Alumni Relations. Morgan previously served on the online admissions team and most recently with the traditional admissions team.

“I have had the pleasure of watching Sherelle engage with students on our campus for several years,” said Joshua Cline, Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Marketing.  “I am excited to see her bring that level of care and attention to our alumni association. I know she will help the University tell the stories of how Bluefield enabled our alumni to go further in life.”

A native of Martinsville, VA, Morgan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Virginia and graduated from Bluefield University’s MBA Leadership program in December 2021. Her professional background consists of 20 years of human resources leadership experience in recruiting, diversity, equity and inclusion, and talent management. She joined the Bluefield University family in 2015 and served in the online and traditional admissions offices and will continue to provide leadership as the Coordinator for Belonging.

“As Director of Alumni Relations, it is my commitment to our alumni to offer events, services, and activities that are engaging and meaningful,” said Morgan. “I’m excited to collaborate with our graduates to make new memories while honoring their time at BU.”

Morgan will collaborate with BU’s Alumni Association Board of Directors and focus on the important work of connecting alumni and friends back to their alma mater through exciting programming and opportunities.

Do I only apply once?

  • No. Students must apply each academic year for the fall semester and submit the necessary documents.

Do I have to take the classes specified in the Associate's Degree tracks as they are listed on the information sheet?

  • No. Students may take any of the courses that are offered in a given term.

Where do I find the textbook listing, and where do I purchase the books?

  • Log in to myBU, and under the "Student" tab, you will find a list of the textbooks required (if any) for each course. Students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks.

How long is a semester?

  • Our semesters are divided into two 8-week terms.

Is there an orientation?

  • Yes. Students can attend an orientation session that explains how to access courses, how to register for classes, and answers other questions.

Where can I find a course description?

Does the student need to take the SAT or ACT in order to take Dual Enrollment classes?

  • No. If a student decides to study at BU full time, BU is currently test-optional for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle.

Are the classes live? Do students need to log in and participate at certain times?

  • Classes are offered online, so a student can log-on and study at their convenience and their own pace. Students have assignments due each week; you can complete your assignments at any point in time before the deadline.

Does an Early College student need to come to campus for anything?

  • No. However, we would love to have you visit our campus if you are interested in continuing with traditional on-campus study. Students who complete their associate's degree have the option to walk at our commencement ceremony.

Are Early College students able to receive Financial Aid?

  • No. However, Early College courses are very affordable compared to other options. The cost for an online Dual Enrollment course is $100 per credit hour.

How do transferring credits work?

  • Each College or University completes a transcript review in order to decide which courses transfer. Sticking to general education classes generally makes transferring credits simple. All Early College courses at Bluefield University are general education classes that should transfer to another accredited institution.

Is an Early College student considered, and treated, as a transfer student when they become a full-time college student if they have earned enough credits to be a Junior?

  • No. Since they have not graduated from high school, they are considered a first-time college student regardless of how many credits transfer. However, by transferring credits when they enroll as a full-time student, they will have to take fewer classes to receive their bachelor's degree, which shortens the length of time to earn the degree.

Can I speak to someone if I have more questions?

  • Yes. Please contact the Office of Admissions by email or you can call them at 276.326.4231
