Wake Tech and NC Central Expand Partnership

April 17th, 2012





RALEIGH, N.C. (April 16, 2012) - Dr. Stephen Scott, president of Wake Tech Community College, and Charlie Nelms, Chancellor of NC Central University, announced today that they are expanding their partnership in Criminal Justice education. This fall, NC Central will set up shop on Wake Tech’s Public Safety Education Campus on Chapanoke Road and begin offering courses leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice. Students who already have an associate’s degree will be able to complete the bachelor’s degree in two years.

The NCCU Bachelor of Science degree program in Criminal Justice at Wake Tech is designed for students seeking careers in law enforcement and criminal justice. It will consist of 57 credit hours of instruction, delivered in eight-week sessions and one five-week summer session, at Wake Tech’s Public Safety Education Campus. The partnership program is being offered through NCCU’s Division of Extended Studies and College Transfer Program.

“Wake Tech is thrilled about NC Central University’s presence on our campus,” President Scott says. “This bachelor’s degree program in Criminal Justice offers students exciting new options for continuing their education in this challenging and important field.”

NCCU Chancellor Nelms says he’s pleased about the expanded partnership: “This is a high-quality program that fits well into our strategic plan for expanding our distance-learning offerings and for attracting highly-motivated transfer students.”

The announcement was made at Wake Tech’s Public Safety Education Campus today, and an information session for prospective students followed from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
