Sioux City's Western Iowa Tech Community College is expanding its partnership with Storm Lake's Buena Vista University.
BVU will now offer degree completion programs at WIT's Sioux City campus, meaning students can get Bachelor's degrees from BV while remaining in Sioux City.
"Western Iowa Tech does the AA perfect. They're the experts, so we're going to let them continue to be the experts. What we're doing is a partnership with Western Iowa Tech to really create a seamless pathway to get that AA degree then come to BV and finish your four year degree," said Dr. Josh Merchant, President of Buena Vista University.
BV will offer degree programs in at least 10 fields starting in August, with a possibility of adding more in the future.
