Agreement between Georgia Gwinnett College and Gwinnett Technical College offers seamless path to a bachelor’s in business
Business majors who complete their two-year associate’s degree can seek a four-year degree in business at Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC), according to an articulation agreement signed today between GGC and Gwinnett Technical College.
“We are happy to, once again, work with our partners at Gwinnett Technical College to expand educational opportunities for students,” said Dr. Jann L. Joseph, president of Georgia Gwinnett College. “This agreement is a win for the students, allowing them to join the workforce faster, while saving time and money.”
Gwinnett Tech President Dr. D. Glen Cannon stated, “Students work hard for their course credits and should be able to take those credits with them wherever they continue their education if both institutions are accredited. Gwinnett Technical College welcomes the opportunity to continue and expand our great partnership with Georgia Gwinnett College. This agreement highlights the commitment both colleges have to keeping student success the most important part of our missions.”
The agreement allows Gwinnett Tech students who have met the requirements for an associate’s degree in business administration to transfer those credits to GGC without losing credits toward their bachelor's degree in business administration. Officials at GGC and Gwinnett Tech say the agreement will prevent course duplication and speed time to graduation.
This isn’t the first time that the two institutions have partnered to advance educational opportunities. GGC and Gwinnett Tech created a similar partnership in 2015, where criminal justice students who earned their associate’s degree at Gwinnett Tech could transfer their credits to GGC in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice/criminology. In 2011, GGC and Gwinnett Tech established a course-transfer agreement where select courses taken at Gwinnett Tech transfer seamlessly to GGC.
