A collaboration of Kentucky colleges is adding a fifth member. 

The collaboration that launched with the fall semester of 2019 is called the University Center of Southern Kentucky. It's based at Somerset Community College.

The newest partner is Lindsey Wilson College. The founding partners are Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State, University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University.

The collaboration gives students the opportunity to complete an associate’s degree at Somerset Community College and then earn a four-year degree through one of the partner colleges. 

The program is open only to SCC students, who complete all the work for their bachelor’s degree through the Pulaski County campus either as online or hybrid courses.

The goal is to allow students to earn a four-year degree while staying near home and minimizing student debt.
