Piedmont Technical College (PTC) and South Carolina State University (SC State) signed an articulation agreement today that will create more options for students who would like to begin their studies at Piedmont Tech and then complete a bachelor’s degree program at SC State.

SC State and PTC have had a longstanding partnership to offer students the opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degrees in Electrical Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology on PTC’s Greenwood Campus. The two institutions are committed to continuing and strengthening this partnership.

In order to offer more opportunities for PTC students to transfer to SC State, the institutions have worked on articulation pathways in the following majors and are committed to keeping these opportunities up-to-date and relevant.

“As workforce needs continue to grow across South Carolina, it is critical that we work together in higher education to ensure that a seamless pathway is in place for students to attain the postsecondary training they need to fill the jobs that are in demand today,” said Ray Brooks, president of PTC. “We are working together to create additional opportunities for those students to pursue the next level of their education, whether their ultimate goal is a bachelor’s, master’s or a doctoral degree.”

This new agreement illustrates the commitment of both institutions to providing better-defined, streamlined transfer opportunities to students in the Lakelands region of South Carolina.

“SC State prides itself on developing relationships with academic, business and community entities. Our partnership with PTC is an example of our new strategic initiative, “Transformation Through Collaboration.” PTC students will have an opportunity to transfer from PTC to SC State to further their pursuit of even higher degrees. This partnership further supports students remaining in South Carolina to contribute to the state’s workforce needs,” said James E. Clark, president of SC State.

The collaboration between SC State and PTC is focused on the greater good of students in PTC’s service region, especially first-generation students. Both institutions are committed to expanding access to college by providing flexible, cost-effective academic programs.
