Halifax Community College Cybersecurity Students Can Transfer to North Carolina Central University

The School of Business at historically Black North Carolina Central University and Halifax Community College have entered into a new partnership aimed to enhance the talent pipeline for the state’s cybersecurity industry. Under the agreement, students from the community college can transfer up to 68 credits into the information technology – cybersecurity concentration program that will apply towards the completion of a bachelor’s degree.

Established in 1967, Halifax Community College is a public, two-year college within the North Carolina Community College System. The campus is located in Weldon, North Carolina, near the southern Virginia border. The college enrolls just under 1,000 students, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 45 percent of the student body.

“At North Carolina Central University School of Business, we understand that a robust education program plays a vital role in preparing students for successful careers. Our partnership with Halifax Community College is a reflection of our commitment to providing high-quality educational opportunities to all students, regardless of their background. Through this collaboration, we hope to provide transfer students with the support they need to make a seamless transition into our cybersecurity program and achieve their educational and career goals,” said Anthony C. Nelson, dean of the School of Business at North Carolina Central University.

“We are excited about this new collaboration with Halifax Community College. We hope that this agreement is beneficial to the students transferring to NCCU,” added Deanne Cranford-Wesley, director of the cybersecurity lab and clinical professor in the computer information systems department at North Carolina Central University. “This partnership is a great opportunity for students who would like to continue their educational journey in the cybersecurity field of study, and to provide companies with an expert range of diverse talent.”
