ATC Signs Two Articulation Agreements with Georgia Southwestern State University

August 16, 2013- Albany, Ga.--  Albany Technical College will officially sign two articulation agreements with Georgia Southwestern State University on Monday, August 19, 2013, at 10:30am in the Executive Board Room, Albany Tech Logistics Education Center.


Through the articulation agreements, students graduating with a Networking Specialist, PC Maintenance Specialist, or Computer Support Specialist Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS) from Albany Tech (ATC) can begin work toward a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Information Technology from Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW).


In addition, students graduating with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Accounting from ATC can begin work toward a Bachelor of Business Arts (BBA) degree in Accounting from GSW, while students graduating with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Business Management from ATC can begin work toward a Bachelor of Business Arts (BBA) degree in Management from GSW.


"Technical college graduates should prepare themselves for promotions and leadership roles and an additional two years of college and a bachelor's degree will indicate they are more than prepared for leadership," said Dr. Anthony O. Parker, President of Albany Technical College.


Parker says the opportunity afforded to Albany Tech's graduates by Georgia Southwestern State will allow students to compete in the future for leadership positions with graduates from four-year colleges throughout the Southeast.


Both agreements are designed to ensure a smooth transition for students from ATC to GSW in the outlined coursework.


"We are proud to partner with Albany Technical College and applaud Dr. Parker and his staff for their efforts to provide for their students educational opportunities beyond the associate degree," said Dr. Kendall A. Blanchard, GSW president. "We are confident this agreement will help to increase the number of persons in Southwest Georgia earning a bachelor's degree and thereby strengthen the work force in this part of the state."
