At Georgia Military College, one of our core missions is to provide pathways for the successful transfer of our degree programs and coursework into a four-year institution. Our SACSCOC accreditation ensures that many of the courses you take at GMC will transfer to the four-year program of your choice (See info on transferring course credits). In addition, GMC makes every effort to pursue articulation (transfer) agreements with four-year institutions to make the transition even easier.
What is an Articulation Agreement?
The simplest explanation is that an articulation agreement is a binding agreement between two institutions that guarantees a successful transfer to the four-year institution. The agreements firmly outline the courses and grades that will be guaranteed to transfer into the four-year institution ensuring that students are able to better plan their coursework to match their future educational plans. Most of our articulation agreements guarantee students direct admission into the colleges/universities listed below provided that the student has completed the Associate of Arts (AA) degree or the Associate of Science (AS) degree at GMC.
How Can I Use These Agreements?
Let's provide a scenario where your goal is to gain admittance to a four-year institution to complete your bachelor's degree; however, you did not receive acceptance into their program due to circumstances such as failing to meet their minimum standards for admission. As a great alternative, you can attend one of our many campuses or online programs for your first two years of coursework (at a much reduced price!) and then transfer into the four-year institution of your choice as a junior to complete your degree. Our articulation agreements ensure that most, if not all, of your GMC coursework will seamlessly transfer to the next institution and count towards the attainment of your bachelor's degree. You can see how this serves as a terrific pathway to your bachelor's degree.
GMC has many articulation agreements already in place, and we are adding more every year.
Agreements marked with an * are guaranteed admission agreements. Please note that guaranteed admission is to the institution and not necessarily to all degree programs at that institution as some programs have additional requirements for admission.
