Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) and Georgia Military College (GMC) held an articulation agreement signing ceremony on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, at Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s North Campus.
The goal of the articulation agreement is to provide Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates of select Oconee Fall Line Technical College programs with an opportunity to continue on with Georgia Military College to earn a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree. Under the agreement, any OFTC student graduating with their AAS degree and having at least 24 semester hours (36 quarter hours) of technical/occupational credit accepted as transfer credit by GMC, is guaranteed admission into one of GMC’s BAS degree programs in Business Management or Supervision and Management.
“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Georgia Military College,” said Dr. Lloyd Horadan, president of Oconee Fall Line Technical College. “Our goal is to offer a student-centered and career-driven education to those who walk through our doors, and this agreement with GMC will add to the opportunities our students will have to continue their education with a seamless transition from an associate to bachelor’s degree.”
This agreement formally recognizes that Oconee Fall Line Technical College and Georgia Military College are committed to the establishment of an educational partnership to better serve currently enrolled and future students at both institutions, as well as, support economic and workforce development in the communities served by these educational institutions.
“We are thrilled to launch this partnership with Oconee Fall Line Technical College to serve the students of Georgia,” said Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell, IV, president of Georgia Military College. “Our BAS degrees are designed to build upon the occupational/technical education provided by an associate of applied science (AAS) degree program and provide an excellent pathway toward completion of a bachelor degree. Our BAS degree programs prepare students for career advancement opportunities and management and supervisory roles in their technical or occupational field. This partnership with OFTC is another step in providing greater opportunities and a brighter future for the citizens of Georgia and is consistent with Gov. Nathan Deal’s Complete College Georgia initiative designed to provide an improved educational pipeline from high school through college graduation.”
