Northwestern Technical College is one of the participating colleges in the agreement and will benefit from the expanding relationship.
TCSG commissioner Ron Jackson, SPSU president Lisa Rossbacher, USG chief operating officer Rob Watts and presidents from 22 TCSG colleges added their signatures to the agreement that allows TCSG students to apply their associates degree credits to one of five technology-focused baccalaureate degrees at SPSU. To qualify, those students will have to graduate in designated programs from any of the 22 TCSG colleges that are regionally ac-credited by the Commission on Colleges.
The five degrees from SPSU are industrial engineering technology, mechanical and elec-tromechanical engineering technology, and bachelor of applied science in manufacturing process, information technology, or management.
This is an exceptionally important partnership because it expands and strengthens seam-less access to higher education opportunities for college students throughout Georgia, said Jackson. Im very grateful to SPSU president Lisa Rossbacher and the University System of Georgia for their commitment to working with the TCSG to strengthen articulation between our systems. Were collaborating to create learning avenues that better serve our students and contribute to a more educated and prosperous Georgia.
