Warner Robins, Ga. – Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) signed an articulation agreement with Fort Valley State University (FVSU) this week for associate degree coursework, adding more transferability options as the College implements its newest degree program this fall.
CGTC’s new Associate of Science (AS) degree in General Studies is mapped to the University System of Georgia’s (USG) core curriculum to allow students the flexibility to transfer into multiple baccalaureate programs at a four-year college or university.
“This agreement provides an affordable pathway into a four-year degree by allowing students to complete their general education core with CGTC and to begin their major program of study for transfer into Fort Valley State University,” said vice president of Academic Affairs, Dr. Amy Holloway. “We are excited to expand our existing partnership to provide this opportunity for our graduates to maximize their transfer options into a four-year degree at FVSU.”
“Fort Valley State University looks forward to welcoming the well-prepared graduates of Central Georgia Technical College into the FVSU family,” said Dr. Paul Jones, FVSU president. “We are confident that their growth into change-makers, innovators, thought leaders, and researchers will be empowered through their work with FVSU faculty and their engagement in our unique educational experience. We are committed to helping each student who becomes a Wildcat through this agreement to reach their true and unlimited potential.”
The General Studies Associate of Science (AS) degree prepares students to pursue a four-year degree or for careers in multiple fields of studies. Graduates will develop academic and professional knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the profession of their choice or to further their education.
The College will offer the General Studies program on each of the three main campuses. Guaranteed acceptance of the 60 program hours within the program is offered through FVSU only. The articulation agreement between the College and USG includes transferability for a majority of the courses into four-year institutions statewide.
