Ferrum and Mary Baldwin reach admission agreement
Ferrum College and Mary Baldwin College have signed an agreement admitting a small group of Ferrum students each year to Mary Baldwin’s graduate health science programs.
Under the agreement, Mary Baldwin will admit one full-time Ferrum student annually to each of its physical therapy, occupational therapy and physician assistant programs at Mary Baldwin’s Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences.
The students will have to meet the agreed-upon performance standards and criteria.
“This agreement represents an excellent opportunity for our students to attend a professional graduate school in some of the most popular health-care professions and provides a strong pathway for them to pursue multiple options for the future,” Jennifer Braaten, Ferrum’s president, said in a statement.
The Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences is under construction in Fishersville. It is expected to open next June.
