January Business of the Month – Marshall University Teays Valley Regional Center

January - Marshall University Teays Valley Regional Center  The Teays Valley Regional Center office is located at 101 Carriage Pointe, Hurricane, WV.  Up to 60 Marshall University courses are offered each semester in the evening in Teays Valley.

In 1996, the WV legislature took action to increase the college going rate in the state by challenging colleges and universities to provide greater accessibility to higher education.  One way that Marshall University met the challenge was by establishing off campus centers.  The Teays Valley Regional Center began offering courses to high school students in the spring of 1997 with 49 students.

While gradually increasing the number of courses offered in Teays Valley, the enrollments through the Teays Valley Regional Center grew from 49 in 1997 to the 2013-2014 enrollments of nearly 1400.  The student population is made up of non-traditional, traditional, and qualified high school students.

Adults completing degrees, adults beginning a degree, and traditional college age students enroll in the courses.  If a person loses his job, needs to earn a degree to keep his job, needs to earn a degree to be promoted, or if a person simply wants to learn, these people can enroll at Marshall University and take courses close to home in the evening. Often, both traditional and non-traditional students work during the day and go to class in the evening to earn college credits.   Local Marshall University course offerings save the students money for room and board, time, gas money, and parking fees. General education courses are offered in Teays Valley making it possible to complete the first two years of college credits.  Additionally, at least two 300 and/or 400 level courses are offered each evening so that a student can complete a Regent’s Bachelor’s degree in Teays Valley.
