Northern Virginia and Greenville Campuses Offer Community College Graduates Pathway to Bachelor’s Degree with Articulation Agreements
ECPI University’s Northern Virginia campus and Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) have signed articulation agreements that gives NVCC students automatic admission into ECPI University’s Cyber and Network Security bachelor degree program. Transferring students will enjoy additional benefits, including lower tuition. NVCC graduates will be charged the equivalent of the highest Virginia in-state tuition and fees for the portion of the program taken at ECPI or actual ECPI University costs, whichever is less. ECPI University will waive the application and registration fees, and accept most NVCC credits.
“We are extraordinarily pleased to enter into this partnership with Northern Virginia Community College,” says ECPI University Northern Virginia Campus President Dr. Voytek Panas. “At the recent statewide Cybersecurity Summit, Governor Terry McAuliffe warned that we simply do not have enough skilled professionals to battle the growing threat from hackers and cyber-criminals. This agreement is a good first step toward addressing this growing problem.”

Transferring students will also receive scholarships of $1,500 per semester or $3,000 per academic year for fulltime registration, making their cost of attendance equivalent to that of other public universities in South Carolina.

“We are excited to expand our relationships with the region’s community colleges,” says ECPI University Greenville Campus President Karen Burgess. “Our region’s tech and manufacturing sector continues to flourish and by working together, we can help graduates fulfill their career ambitions and our employment partners meet their workforce needs.”
