Elizabeth City State University Creates Pipeline Program for Students at the College of Albemarle

Historically Black Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina has signed a co-admission agreement and a kinesiology program agreement with the College of Albemarle, which is also located in Elizabeth City. The partnership will create a pathway for community college students to transfer to Elizabeth City State University from the College of Albemarle with ease.

The co-admission agreement will allow the community college’s students to form a relationship with the university. This will provide students with the opportunity to benefit from the university’s activities and social programs so that their transfer to the four-year institution is as smooth as possible.

Additionally, the two institutions have collaborated on a pipeline program for kinesiology students at the community college. After receiving their associate’s degree from the College of Albemarle, kinesiology students will be able to transfer to the four-year university’s kinesiology program.

“We are looking at preparing students for employment,” said Dr. Jennifer Brown, assistant professor of kinesiology at Elizabeth City State University. “We want them to be experts and that means more opportunities.”

The College of Albemarle enrolls just over 2,500 students, according to the latest data furnished to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 12 percent of the student body.
