Aiken Technical College and Georgia Military College Sign Articulation Agreement

Aiken Technical College (ATC) and Georgia Military College (GMC) signed an articulation agreement to expand educational opportunities for students in the state of South Carolina. This is GMC’s first articulation agreement for its Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree programs outside of the state of Georgia. This partnership will be beneficial to students at both institutions, especially given ATC’s close proximity to GMC’s Augusta campus and the common communities to which both institutions provide educational services.

The goal of the articulation agreement is to provide Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates of select Aiken Technical College programs with an opportunity to continue with Georgia Military College to earn a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree. Under the agreement, any ATC 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, Supervision and Management, or Supply Chain Management and Logistics.

“This is a great opportunity for our graduates interested in furthering their education,” said Dr. Forest E. Mahan, president of Aiken Technical College. “A part of our mission is to provide students with opportunities for educational development and that involves encouraging graduates to further their education. This articulation agreement opens the door for graduates to continue on their path to success and helps keep their career aspirations within reach.”

This agreement formally recognizes that Aiken 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 Aiken Technical College to serve the students of South Carolina,” 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, management, and supervisory roles in their technical or occupational field. This partnership with ATC is another step in providing greater opportunities and a brighter future for all citizens.”
