Beaver Falls College Reaches Out to Students

August 1, 2012 by  

It’s not often that a college is forced to shut down. When it does happen, it is a massive blow to students already attending, as the students of West Virginia’s Mountain State University have found out.

The University has decided to close due to a pending loss of accreditation, and Geneva College, located in Beaver Falls, has reached out to the students affected.

To help make those students affected complete their degrees in a timely manner, Geneva will host an open house on August 2. The open house twill take place at a Holiday Inn Express in Township Center, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and students interested in transferring to the college are invited to drop in at any time throughout the day. No pre-registration is required.

Brochure printers in Beaver Falls must have been busy preparing for the open house event. The event will not only give Mountain State University students the chance to explore the programs offered by Geneva, it also gave them a chance to seriously weigh their options. Counselors will also be on hand to discuss the transfer of credits and financial aid.

Geneva College was especially concerned about adult students at the shuttered West Virginia school. Adults students typically enroll in college with a goal of completing a degree rapidly. Geneva has a special adult degree completion course that allows students to finish a bachelor’s degree within 17 months. Students have the option of attending the program at locations throughout West Pennsylvania, not only in Beaver Falls. The school also offers more traditional undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
