WKU partners with Texas college that has a branch in Fort Knox

Allows students to transfer credits

FORT KNOX, Ky. (Oct. 14, 2016) — Western Kentucky University and Central Texas College have signed an agreement providing a seamless transfer path to a four-year degree. CTC has a site in Fort Knox.

The articulation agreement, signed Wednesday  in Fort Knox, will allow CTC students who transfer to WKU to carry with them the credits they have already earned for as much relevant study as possible. In addition, CTC students completing associates degrees can earn a bachelor’s degree without taking additional general education courses.

CTC, headquartered in Killeen, Texas, has a worldwide presence in higher education. CTC’s Fort Knox site has provided higher education opportunities to service members, their families, veterans and civilians in the area for more than 20 years. Through more than 100 CTC sites on military installations worldwide, students may receive assistance, information and take courses in the classroom, not just during deployments abroad or while stationed in Texas.

“Those folks who have served this nation so well deserve the finest opportunity not only to advance their military careers, but whatever their civilian pursuits might be as well,”  said WKU Provost David Lee. “It’s so important to who we are as an institution and the kind of role we want to play in our national life.”
