Southeastern Technical College and Georgia Military College sign Articulation Agreement
January 26, 2017 - Southeastern Technical College (STC) and Georgia Military College (GMC) held an articulation agreement signing ceremony on Thursday, January 26, 2017, at Southeastern Technical College’s campus in Vidalia.
The goal of the articulation agreement is to provide Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates of select Southeastern Technical College programs with an opportunity to continue with Georgia Military College to earn a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree. Under the agreement, any STC student graduating with their AAS degree and having at least 24 semester hours (36 quarter hours) of technical/occupational credit accepted as transfer credit by GMC, is guaranteed admission into one of GMC’s BAS degree programs in Business Management or Supervision and Management.
“I’m very excited that Southeastern Tech is providing yet another opportunity for our associate degree graduates to earn a four-year degree,” said Larry Calhoun, President of STC. “This agreement provides degree graduates the ability to transfer to GMC, and best of all, the programs are online so these students are able to take advantage of the flexibility and convenience offered by online classes.”
This agreement formally recognizes that Southeastern Technical College and Georgia Military College are committed to the establishment of an educational partnership to better serve currently enrolled and future students at both institutions, as well as, support economic and workforce development in the communities served by these educational institutions.
“We are thrilled to launch this partnership with Southeastern Technical College to serve the students of Georgia,” said Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell, IV, president of Georgia Military College. “Our BAS degrees are designed to build upon the occupational/technical education provided by an associate of applied science (AAS) degree program and provide an excellent pathway toward completion of a bachelor degree. Our BAS degree programs prepare students for career advancement opportunities and management and supervisory roles in
their technical or occupational field. This partnership with STC is another step in providing greater opportunities and a brighter future for the citizens of Georgia and is consistent with Gov. Nathan Deal’s Complete College Georgia initiative designed to provide an improved educational pipeline from high school through college graduation.”
