SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall University will start offering undergraduate classes at its South Charleston campus beginning this fall.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1OI7ayr) this will be the first time undergraduates will be enrolled at the satellite campus, which has been used for graduate classes for years.

University president Jerome Gilbert says he hopes the move will attract new students and that the campus will grow over the years.

Course offerings will likely include general education and classes for engineering, biology, chemistry, nursing and athletic training students.

University spokeswoman Ginny Painter says the final course list will depend on student interest after registration later this spring.

Gilbert said students can start classes in South Charleston and finish their degrees in Huntington.

The university will begin advertising classes at the campus starting in March.
