SAVANNAH, Ga. (WJCL) — Georgia Military College juniors with a decent grade point average will have a leg up getting into a local university after a memorandum of understanding each signed on Friday.
Armstrong State University officials signed the document along with the junior college located in Milledgeville, Ga. in an effort to make it easier for students to transfer to Armstrong.
The memorandum states that any Georgia Military College student who graduates with an associate degree and a 2.0 GPA will be guaranteed admission to Armstrong and enter at the junior level, with core classes complete.
Armstrong President Linda Bleicken and Georgia Military College President William B. Caldwell IV, Lieutenant General, U.S. Army (Ret.), signed the memorandum of understanding.
Armstrong Interim Provost David Ward and Armstrong-Liberty Center Director Pete Hoffman attended the signing ceremony.
“This partnership with Georgia Military College is important to Armstrong and to our students,” said Bleicken. “We value our military students and do everything we can to help them. Now, we have the chance to recognize students at Georgia Military College and welcome them to Armstrong.”
This partnership is one of many ways Armstrong is committed to serving its military students. Earlier this year, Armstrong announced plans to waive all mandatory student fees for active duty military students. The university has also been named a Yellow Ribbon Program school.
Armstrong has earned a military friendly designation by MilitaryVetJobs.com and has been ranked on G.I. Jobs magazine’s annual Military Friendly Schools List. The university recently launched a Green Zone initiative to support active duty military students and veterans on campus in Savannah, Ga. and Hinesville, Ga.
Georgia Military College was established in 1879 and is located in Milledgeville, Ga. Currently, 1,549 students are enrolled in the junior college, which offers several different associate degree programs for students from across the region.
