"This agreement will help students transfer from New River CTC to Concord University to achieve their educational goals by enhancing the advising process and promoting acceptance of equivalent courses."

Concord President Dr. Kendra Boggess added, "Concord University is excited about the opportunity to assist New River CTC graduates in taking their next step. This agreement helps not only students and graduates of New River CTC, but also business and industry in our area by helping to train and educate qualified employees."

Under the new agreement, New River CTC graduates in good standing who maintained at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) in their Associate of Arts, Associate of Science or Associate of Applied Science degree program are guaranteed admission to Concord.
