Partnership between Kentucky and West Virginia technical colleges. (Front and Center).

Thanks to an agreement announced in June, students enrolled in West Virginia community and technical colleges will have access to Kentucky distance learning courses.

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and the Kentucky Virtual University (KYVU) signed an agreement with the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission establishing the partnership. All of West Virginia's public community and technical colleges are eligible for participation in the course offerings from the Kentucky system.

Daniel Rabuzzi, CEO of KYVU, calls the partnership an example of how agencies can work together to meet the needs of citizens.

West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission Chancellor J. Michael Mullen says, "This agreement will provide additional access for the citizens of West Virginia to pursue higher education opportunities. The unique part of this agreement is that students won't have to leave their homes to earn college credit."

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System comprises more than 50 campuses operating in 16 districts. For more information, visit or
