Shaw University Enters Partnership With Wake Technical Community College

Shaw University, a historically Black educational institution in Raleigh, North Carolina, has entered into an agreement with Wake Technical Community College in Raleigh, that will allow for a smooth transition for Wake graduates who earn an associate’s degree in computer science to transfer to Shaw University to complete a bachelor’s degree.

Wake Technical Community College enrolls more than 21,000 students at six campuses, according to the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 22 percent of the student body.

According to the agreement, any Wake Tech student enrolling at Shaw may transfer up to 70 credit hours toward a bachelor’s degree. All academic coursework completed at Wake Tech for which a student has earned a grade of C- or higher is fully transferable to Shaw University. Transfer students can complete four-year degrees in computer science with a general concentration or in cyber operations.

Paulette Dillard, president of Shaw University, said: “This new partnership and technology articulation agreement with Wake Technical Community College is a significant milestone for both institutions and a great opportunity for students seeking to complete a four-year degree program. By combining our strengths in technology-based training, Shaw and Wake Tech are enhancing workforce development and securing the pipeline for skilled technology professionals in the future.”
