Mission

certificate winners
Braxton County Center (BCC) adult learners Connie Roberts and Julie Greenlee received academic achievement awards at the 2014-2015 Annual School of Business Recognition Event. Both students took the majority of their courses at BCC, have earned their Associates Degree and are pursuing their four-year Bachelor degrees at GSC.
The mission of the Off-Campus Programming of GSC is to enable students to become successful upon graduation. Area high schools offer dual-credit (early entrance) courses that allow students to earn both college and high school credit. The faculty of scholars who are practitioners in their respective fields, enhance the learning process and guide students to reach their goals.

Off-campus programs are also committed to providing opportunities for the non-traditional student and the working parent. Course offerings are tailored by providing traditional courses in evenings to enhance the opportunity of completing a college education while balancing a busy schedule.

Please take a moment to visit the campus site links in the gray menu on the left-hand side of the page. We have developed a real-time, online schedule that displays current and future schedules so that you may build your college schedule anytime and anywhere.

The value of an education starts with you. So take the next step in becoming a Pioneer at Glenville State; after all, it is “Where You Belong!”

FAQ

What is the “College Courses for High School Students” program (also known as “Dual Credit”)?
The “College Courses for High School Students” program at Glenville State College gives high school juniors and seniors opportunities to get started early with college courses while still being in high school. When enrolling in GSC’s courses that are held in the high school during school hours, high school students not only receive college credit but high school credit as well.
What are the benefits of the Program?
Save time: one of the most beneficial aspects is the ability to advance a college career while still being a high school student.
Save money: one dual-credit course costs 1/3 of what a regular on-campus course costs.
Who is eligible for the Program?
High school juniors and seniors must meet the following guidelines:
  • A Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 or better.
  • Be recommended by the high school principal.
  • Met the prerequisites of the desired course(s) as outlined in the College’s catalog
A GSC representative will come to your high school to register students for classes. Students must provide copies of the ACT or SAT scores if enrolling in English or mathematical courses. For more information on the passing scores, please consult the College’s catalog.
What textbooks are used for the courses?
The courses off-campus use the same textbook as on-campus courses. Please contact the College’s Bookstore for more information regarding the current text for the course(s).
Will the college courses transfer to other college?
The courses offered to high school students are considered “general education” or “general studies” courses. Typically, a high school student who earns credit in those type of courses can easily transfer the credits to any two- or four-year public college or university in West Virginia. If you plan to attend a private or an out-of-state college or university, please contact the institution’s Registrar for information on acceptance of credit.
