The College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment at Auburn University is honored to be part of a new and innovative transfer opportunity for Wallace Community College students. This collaborative STEM Scholars 2+2 partnership for degree completion in Natural Resources Management will provide students with “job ready” critical thinking skills and training to work in variety of settings in conservation, the outdoors, watersheds, natural resources policy, environmental interpretation and sustainability. Most importantly, students will prepare for a career focused on defining ecological problems and identifying complex environmental solutions now and for future generations.
Students will complete the first two years of coursework at Wallace Community College, in their home area of Dothan, Alabama, to earn an Associate’s Degree in Science and experience the convenience and affordability of an excellent education at their community college. Students will then transfer to Auburn University and complete their remaining classes in two years as a graduate of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment.
Other benefits – an Auburn University advisor will visit Wallace Community College every semester to meet with students, assist with class selection, provide scholarship information, explain the admissions application and help make a smooth transition to Auburn University when they are ready to transfer. The College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment will also pay for their Transfer Student Admissions Application.
This STEM Scholars 2+2 transfer partnership in Natural Resources Management will have a dynamic impact on the lives of WCC students! Not only will they earn a prestigious Auburn University degree, but students will also discover and recognize a diverse selection of excellent professional career opportunities in natural resources management.
