Georgia Military College signs articulation agreement with Armstrong State University

On August 29, 2014 Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, president of Georgia Military College (GMC), and Dr. Linda Bleicken, president of Armstrong State University signed an articulation agreement that will allow GMC students to apply their associate degree credits toward Armstrong State baccalaureate degrees.  GMC students will be able to transfer degree credits without losing credit hours, providing a more seamless transition to Armstrong State. 

“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 said. “Armstrong State University offers significant opportunities for our students to further their education.”

Lt. Gen. Caldwell noted that, “GMC holds articulation agreements with 36 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.”
