Warner Robins, Ga. Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) announced a new set of articulation agreements this summer with the University of Phoenix that create new pathways for CGTC graduates in high-demand Information Technology (IT) and Nursing programs to advance students to the baccalaureate level.
Both institutions signed agreements in Cybersecurity, IT Professional, and Nursing that include a transfer pathway of courses for each program. Transferable courses provide an affordable pathway to help students accelerate their learning and move into their careers faster.
The University of Phoenix will allow up to 87 credits of transfer to CGTC AAS graduates who are admitted to the University in pursuit of one of these baccalaureate degrees.
CGTC encourages students in these programs to explore their options to further their education.
“These agreements provide a significant number of credits applied,” said vice president for Academic Affairs, Dr. Amy Holloway. “These are our most generous transfer agreements thus far. CGTC is pleased to add the University of Phoenix to our growing list of higher education partners and to provide our graduates this opportunity to advance in these high-demand fields.”
According to US News, IT and Nursing professions account for four of the top-10 best jobs in the country.
At CGTC, several Computer Technology programs are HOPE Career Grant eligible, meaning qualified students may be eligible for zero tuition.
Locally, during the pandemic, CGTC Nurses played an integral role in Central Georgia’s fight against the COVID-19 virus, becoming essential to not only the community’s everyday healthcare needs but also its most unprecedented.
These articulated programs offer students excellent career and educational opportunities. CGTC invites students to find the right option for their future and get the training they need alongside the help of high-skilled faculty.
