Georgia Military College to sign articulation agreement with Fort Valley State University

June 4, 2014 – On June 10, 2014 Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, president of Georgia Military College (GMC), and Dr. Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, president of Fort Valley State University (FVSU), will sign an articulation agreement that will allow GMC students to apply their associate degree credits toward FVSU baccalaureate degrees. GMC students will be able to transfer degree credits without losing credit hours, providing a more seamless transition to FVSU. The articulation agreement signing will take place at 11:30 a.m. in the legislative chamber of the Old Capitol Building on the campus of Georgia Military College. “GMC is a liberal arts-based, two-year college. Although we serve 250 ROTC cadets (at the Milledgeville Campus), the vast majority of our students are typical community college students. GMC has nine campuses throughout the state and serves about 12,000 students annually, many of whom go on to pursue baccalaureate degrees at four-year colleges and universities,” Lt. Gen. Caldwell noted. “Fort Valley State University offers significant opportunities for our students to further their education.” Lt. Gen. Caldwell also noted that, “GMC holds articulation agreements with a number of colleges and universities in Georgia, and will continue to pursue agreements with University System of Georgia colleges and universities in order to support Governor Nathan Deal’s Complete College Georgia initiative, as well as to support Georgia Military College graduates who desire to pursue baccalaureate degrees.”
