GC complies with the USG`s national transfer agreement with the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) to accept the corresponding English and math courses, also known as «Mini-Core». As such, GC accepts the following courses by TCSG institutions: Georgia College accepts transfer credits in accordance with the policies, rules and practices of the Georgia University System, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS) and its mission as a public liberal arts institution. The equivalency of GC courses for each transfer course is determined by the faculty of each department and is based on criteria such as course content, course outcomes, system-wide agreements and course level of instruction. The Chancery processes transfer credits on the basis of these faculty decisions. This agreement formally recognizes that Georgia Military College and the University of Augusta are working towards an education partnership to better serve students currently enrolled and future in both institutions and to create highly qualified teachers to support the communities that these educational institutions have supervised. June 13, 2014 – Dr. Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, President of Fort Valley State University and Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, President of Georgia Military College (GMC), recently signed a joint agreement that facilitates the visit of GMC students to Fort Valley State. The articulation agreement was signed on June 10 at 11:30 a.m. .m. in the House of Parliament of the Old Capitol Building on the GMC campus. These agreements formally recognize that the fachhochschulen and Georgia Military College (GMC), listed below, are engaged in the establishment of an educational partnership to better serve students currently enrolled and future in both institutions and to support economic development and workforce development in the communities they serve. Institutions agree to allow students who choose to obtain a BAS degree after obtaining an Associate Diploma in Applied Science (AAS) or Applied Technology Associate (AAT) to transition as smoothly and comprehensively as possible.
These articulation agreements promote the portability of curricula by the Applied Science Associate, which was obtained at the specialized graduate school at the GMC Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS). The simplest explanation is that an articulation agreement is a binding agreement between two institutions that guarantees a successful transfer to the institution of four years. The agreements define the courses and grades that will be transferred to the four-year institution to ensure that students can better plan their training work to meet their future educational programs.
