HCC and Virginia Union University Officials sign New Articulation Agreement
WELDON, N.C. – Halifax Community College (HCC) and Virginia Union University (VUU) officials signed a new articulation agreement, April 15. The institutions have joined together in an effort to facilitate the transfer of students graduating from HCC into a baccalaureate degree program at VUU.

As part of the agreement, HCC and VUU agree that a graduate of HCC with a degree in Associate in Art, Associate in Science and/or Associate in General Education with at least a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale will be admitted to VUU provided all other conditions for admission are met. Students will be considered to have fulfilled the institution-wide general education requirements of VUU.

VUU agrees to accept college transfer coursework completed at HCC as equivalent to VUU courses. A transfer student may receive up to a maximum of 65 semester hours of academic credit. A recipient of an associate degree from HCC who is admitted to VUU as a transfer student will have junior class status at VUU.

"Due to our close geographic proximity to Virginia, I think this is a fitting and proper agreement for our students," said HCC President Dr. Ervin V. Griffin Sr. "We are working extremely hard to provide a top-notch education that is recognizable not only here in our area, but all over the nation."

"We want our graduates to be outstanding citizens," said VUU President Dr. Claude G. Perkins. "We want our students to develop the skills of becoming a global citizen so that they can compete on a global basis." Perkins announced that $150,000 in scholarships would be set aside for HCC transfer students admitted to VUU under the signed agreement.
