COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi University for Women and Itawamba Community College announced a partnership to benefit honors college students.
MUW President Nora Miller and ICC President Jay Allen signed an agreement that allows honors students at ICC to automatically transfer into MUW’s honors program.
To qualify, ICC students must receive the Presidential Scholarship from MUW (a grade point average of 3.8 or higher) or be in good standing with a 3.4 GPA and a letter of support from a faculty member.
