Georgia Military College signs articulation agreement with Fort Valley State University

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), signed 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. “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, including Warner Robins, 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 said. “Fort Valley State University offers significant opportunities for our students to further their education.” Dr. Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, president of FVSU, said, “I’m delighted that we are building this partnership with Georgia Military College, whichhas a splendid reputation for making the dreams of young men and women come true. Not only will young men and women be able to complete their baccalaureate degrees at Fort Valley State University, but I know some of them also will want to pursue their master’s degrees with us,” he said. Lt. Gen. Caldwell noted that, “GMC holds articulation agreements with a number of colleges and universities in Georgia, and will continue to pursue agreements with four-year 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.”
