Two area colleges have made it easier for students to transfer credits.
Earlier this spring, Central Georgia Technical College and Fort Valley State University created transfer agreements for courses in early childhood education, accounting, marketing, business management and engineering. The partnership will give students greater options for their educational pathways, according to a news release.
With engineering, students who earn associate of applied science degrees from Central Georgia Tech’s engineering technology program can apply their credits toward Fort Valley’s bachelor of science in electronics engineering program.
“The ‘2 plus 2’ agreement is a first for our region and is a key measure of our goal in creating viable pathways for our students in the central Georgia region,” Central Georgia Tech president Ivan Allen said. “Partnerships such as this provide valuable opportunities for our students to continue their education close to home, and in turn, strengthen our local workforce.”
