MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (WDHN) — Wallace Community College and Troy University reached an agreement that will allow students with an associates degree in applied sciences to get in to the Occupational Education Program at Troy University.

The agreement was signed last Wednesday by the two institutions.

The occupational education degree combines theory with experience to prepare students as workforce development professionals in a variety of settings and occupations.

This program will be a way for students to reach their educational and career goals.

“Those thirty hours are already going to be embedded in to that program,” WCCD Dean of Instructional Affairs Leslie Reeder said. “So again what it’s doing is tearing down barriers and creating additional pathways, additional opportunities for our students to meet both their educational and career goals.”

This is the third articulation agreement that Wallace Community College has signed with Troy University, where the first agreement was signed in 2018.
