BECKLEY, W.Va. – Mountain State University and the University of Charleston will conduct registration fairs and information sessions for students this week in Van Dyke Hall (formerly Heritage Hall) on the Beckley campus. 

The sessions will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Students eligible to graduate at the end of the fall semester can register for classes at Mountain State University. 

All other students can receive admissions and transfer information, as well as register for classes at the University of Charleston. 

Admissions, financial aid, registration and other staff from both institutions will be available to assist students. 

Students who are unable to attend the sessions can email AskMSU@mountainstate.edu or uc_msuinfo@ucwv.edu to schedule a phone meeting or obtain additional information. 

The University of Charleston last week announced that it is cooperating with Mountain State University as its primary partner in the teach-out of current MSU students, and that the two colleges have agreed to negotiate a separate agreement under which UC could establish four-year private college centers in Beckley and Martinsburg by the end of the year. 

The Higher Learning Commission announced its intention to withdraw MSU's accreditation in June, but agreed to extend accreditation through Dec. 31 to allow MSU students to complete degree programs. In addition to being the primary partner in the teach-out program, UC will admit all MSU students in good standing who wish to complete their degree programs through UC.  To ease the transition, UC will teach classes at MSU's campuses in Beckley and Martinsburg during the fall 2012 semester.
