VERSAILLES, Ky. — A private accredited online university has announced a new partnership with The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) that allows Kentucky community college graduates to seamlessly transfer their coursework.

“WGU has built very strong relationships with community college organizations and higher education institutions across the United States.
