Without leaving home, she can then pursue a Bachelor of Technology degree at MUW through the Columbus university’s new V3 online college.

MUW is partnering with the technical programs of the 15 community colleges to offer the opportunity to all students who graduate with the Associate of Applied Sciences degree. Hinds and MUW officials signed the agreement on Sept. 10.
