Friday, 29 May 2009

May 29--  Students at Southeastern Technical College willl find it possible now to have their credits accepted at a four-year college due to a new agreement.

The leadership of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU) and the University System of Georgia (USG) have signed an important agreement that expands articulation between the TCSG and SPSU.

Image“This agreement will make it possible for our graduates to transfer the first two years of credits that they take with us and then complete a bachelor’s degree at SPSU with an additional two years of coursework,” said Dr. Cathy Mitchell, President of STC.  “Students will be able to take SPSU courses online which will be convenient for those with jobs and families.  It will also help us keep these skilled graduates in our community.”

TCSG Commissioner Ron Jackson, SPSU President Lisa Rossbacher, USG Chief Operating Officer Rob Watts and presidents from 22 TCSG colleges added their signatures to the agreement that allows TCSG students to apply their associate’s degree credits to one of five technology-focused baccalaureate degrees at SPSU.  To qualify, those students will have to graduate in designated programs from any of the 22 TCSG colleges, including Southeastern Tech and Swainsboro Tech, which are regionally accredited by the Commission on Colleges. 

The five degrees from SPSU are industrial engineering technology, mechanical and electromechanical engineering technology, and bachelor of applied science in manufacturing process, information technology, or management.
