Piedmont Technical College recently signed an articulation agreement with Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College that will allow students to complete two years of coursework at PTC, and transfer to the South Georgia college to complete their bachelor’s degree.
This partnership will offer Piedmont Technical College students more options as they prepare for careers. The agreement will provide a seamless transition for those who would like to begin their college careers closer to home. Because PTC is an open-admissions institution, the agreement will offer students who require additional academic preparation an alternative for admission to Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
Students transferring to ABAC may choose to enroll in the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Rural Studies with majors in Business and Economic Development, Social and Community Development, Politics and Modern Cultures or Writing and Communication.
Requirements for participation are the same as with any transfer student wishing to attend ABAC. Students must have earned an associate degree with an overall 2.0 GPA and must submit an admissions application and all other standard paperwork in order to be considered.
“The options available for our students through this agreement are limitless,” said Dr. Jennifer Wilbanks, associate vice president for academic affairs and off-campus. “This agreement will provide students with a direct pathway from PTC to Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in their choice of curriculum and offer a significant financial savings on the total cost of earning a bachelor’s degree.”
