Georgia Military College signs articulation agreement with Georgia Gwinnett College
On April 9, 2015 Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, President of Georgia Military College (GMC), and Dr. Stanley C. “Stas” Preczewski, President of Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC), signed an articulation agreement which will allow GMC students to apply their Associate Degree credits toward Georgia Gwinnett College baccalaureate degrees. GMC students will be able to transfer degree credits without losing credit hours, providing a more seamless transition to GGC. Additionally, any GMC student who graduates from Georgia Military College with an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree is guaranteed admission into Georgia Gwinnett College, provided that the student has a GPA of 2.0 out of a 4.0 scale for all college course work.
GMC President LtGen William B. Caldwell, IV commented, “We are thrilled to have this opportunity with Georgia Gwinnett College. The fact that our students now have the unique ability to take all of their courses from GMC and directly transfer them over to Georgia Gwinnett College is an enormous benefit for our students.”
“Georgia Gwinnett College is pleased to further broaden access to higher education by entering into this Articulation Agreement with Georgia Military College. This is a win-win for the State of Georgia,” said Dr. Stanley C. “Stas” Preczewski, GGC president.
GMC is a liberal arts-based, two-year college. Although 250 ROTC cadets attend the Milledgeville Campus, the vast majority of GMC’s students are typical community college students. GMC has nine (soon to be 11) 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. LtGen Caldwell noted that, “GMC now holds articulation agreements with 40 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.”
Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC) is an accredited, four-year institution offering an innovative, 21st-century educational environment specially designed for today’s student. GGC offers majors in 14 programs and more than 40 areas of study. GGC opened in 2006 with 118 students, and now has nearly 11,000 students.
