Miles College, the historically Black educational institution in Fairfield, Alabama, has entered into an agreement with Wallace Community College to create opportunities for community college students to continue their education.
Under the agreement, Wallace Community College students will be considered for admission to Miles College after earning an associate degree and maintaining at least a 2.0 grade point average. Up to a maximum of 64 semester hours could be transferred and credited toward a bachelor’s degree at Miles College.
The new partnership will provide reciprocal privileges for using Miles College’s Library Resource Center, College, and Career Center and admission to athletic events. There are also opportunities for advising from both Wallace Community College and Miles College.
“We have to reimagine education; we have to meet students where they are and allow them opportunities to prepare them for that global society. We should be building our enrollment at every institution in the state because we have to ensure we are preparing our students for this society and equipping them to propel our state forward,” said Bobbie Knight, president of Miles College.
