College Transition Initiative: In 2007, the West Virginia Legislature set forth in its budget, a line item to fund the development and on-going implementation of a for-credit College Transition 101 course for a targeted population of high school students. The College Transition initiative has shown great success over the past four years. The initiative began in 2007 with 375 students and has grown to 478 students in 2010, a 27% increase.
It is the intent of this College Transition Initiative to establish an increased interest in the 2.2 - 2.8 grade point average (GPA) students in developing a career pathway to postsecondary education. The College Transition Initiative provides more students the opportunity to acquire college credit courses while in high school and to provide additional ancillary services necessary to effectively and efficiently transition from high school to postsecondary education.
