Students attending 16 technical schools across the state can now bridge credits to Anderson University’s online and on-campus bachelor’s degree programs through an agreement with the S.C. Technical College System.
“This agreement is a culmination of our efforts to partner with the S.C. Technical College System to create streamlined pathways for students who desire to continue their education at Anderson University,” Evans Whitaker, president of Anderson University, said in a news release. “Students from all 16 technical colleges will now find their credits seamlessly applied to our numerous online or on-campus bachelor’s degree programs.
