MSU forms partnership with UWA
STARKVILLE — Mississippi State University’s (MSU’s) Bagley College of Engineering is forming an interstate partnership to enable some students at the University of West Alabama (UWA) to also earn an MSU engineering degree.
The cooperative effort recently was announced between the institutions in, respectively, Starkville and Livingston, Ala. In addition to a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, UWA students now may earn a bachelor’s in one of the 10 academic majors of MSU’s Bagley College.
“This is a great opportunity for us to ensure that all talented students have the opportunity to earn an engineering degree even when they might not have initially thought that door was open to them,” said Bagley dean Sarah Rajala.
The agreement outlines a three-year course of study that allows UWA students to transfer to MSU without fear of nontransferable credit hours or incompatible degree requirements. Participants must satisfy Bagley College admission requirements, obtain a recommendation letter from a designated UWA official and fulfill all course requirements established by the institutions.
