Randolph Community College Program
Salem College offers its Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) program through the University Center of Randolph County at Randolph Community College’s Asheboro Campus. Salem has been piloting the program at the University Center since August 2008.
“Simply put, this means Salem College offers a four-year degree or ‘degree completion’ program in business administration at RCC,” said Ed Hartgrove, executive-in-residence and business and economics faculty member at Salem, who performs the liaison functions for the program along with Clark Adams, English/communications instructor for RCC. “We are excited to be able to provide this opportunity to the citizens of Randolph County and surrounding counties, and we are grateful for this partnership with Randolph Community College through the University Center of Randolph County,” continued Hartgrove.
Salem College was one of the colleges who joined the University Center of Randolph County at its inception in 2008, creating an opportunity for local students to complete a baccalaureate degree without leaving the county.
"Our objective is to offer a quality program to Randolph County citizens,” said Hartgrove. “We will do this through an innovative curriculum designed to prepare students for their professional aspirations and by staying tuned into our current students’ needs.”
The RCC program offered by Salem began with a marketing specialty and has recently expanded to include a finance specialty. Also, students can now complete their degree in six semesters (instead of nine) and, if they qualify, they can apply for financial aid as a full-time student.
