Greenville Technical College and Lander University have formed a partnership to enhance the transfer of students from the technical college to the Greenwood university.

The articulation agreements will allow Greenville Tech students to move easily to Lander along with their credits, entering as juniors, according to a news release. Students who meet the requirements of the program will be guaranteed admission to Lander and will receive priority acceptance into the major they have selected.

Associate degrees in criminal justice, human resources, paralegal, management and accounting will transfer to bachelor’s degree programs in similar fields.

“Lander University has partnered with Greenville Technical College many times to increase the ease of transfer for students interested in earning a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree,” Keith Miller, president of Greenville Technical College, said in the news release. “These agreements are good for the students of our state as they provide a clear path from one level of education to the next, allowing students to create a strong foundation and build upon it.”

According to the news release 40% of the students at GTC are earning credits and gaining a strong foundation for transfer. Greenville Tech’s Planning and Transfer Headquarters provides information, resources and academic planning services to assist as they prepare for the transition to Lander.

"Greenville Technical College is a greatly valued partner of Lander University,” Scott Jones, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Lander, said in the news release. “Its outstanding programs position its students for success, and our agreements with Greenville Technical College allow students to further their education and to continue to advance their careers. These agreements are part of our university's commitment to developing the workforce of South Carolina by providing a high quality education that fosters professional development and enables our students to lead satisfying and productive lives."
