COLUMBIA, KY. -- Lindsey Wilson College partners with Somerset Community College and the University Center of Southern Kentucky to bring new opportunities to area students. 

The memorandum of understanding, which was signed in January, will give students attending Somerset Community College the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree without having to move away from home. LWC is the first private college to join the University Center of Southern Kentucky. 

“SCC is excited to welcome Lindsey Wilson College to the University Center of Southern Kentucky,” said SCC Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs Clint Hayes. “We have worked together for several years and look forward to bringing additional opportunities to our students through this partnership.” 

LWC will offer a variety of fully-online, four-year degree programs to UCSK, as well as a master’s program in counseling and a MBA program. 

“We’ve been partners with Somerset Community College for many, many years now,” said LWC President William T. Luckey Jr. “LWC was once a two-year college and we know how important it is to have your students go on and get their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. We are not in competition, we are partners and are honored to work with you in serving the students who want to stay in this region.” 

The partnership makes earning a bachelor’s degree more accessible and affordable. Under the agreement, students complete half of their degree at SCC’s tuition rate and the other half of the bachelor’s degree from LWC with full access to institutional services such as admissions, registration, advising and remote library access. 

“We certainly enjoy being invited to the dance and becoming the first private college to be a part of this exciting and important initiative,” Luckey said. “SCC does such a great job with getting students through those difficult first two years -- it will be our privilege to take these talented students to the finish line.”
