Georgia Military College and South Georgia Tech to Sign Articulation Agreement
Americus, GA- South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) and Georgia Military College (GMC) will hold an articulation agreement signing ceremony on Tuesday, August 30 at 10 p.m. in the John M. Pope Industrial Technology Center at South Georgia Technical College’s Americus Campus.
The goal of the articulation agreement is to provide Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates of select South Georgia Technical College programs with an opportunity to continue on with Georgia Military College to earn a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree. Under the agreement, any SGTC student graduating with their AAS degree and has 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.
“South Georgia Technical College is very proud to pen this agreement with Georgia Military College as it provides even more options for our graduates,” said SGTC President Dr. John Watford. “The agreement with GMC, as with the other agreements we have with Institutions of higher education, further validates the rigor of our curriculum and the quality of education that students receive here at South Georgia Tech.”
This agreement formally recognizes that South Georgia 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 South Georgia 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 SGTC 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.”
