The presidents of Piedmont Technical College (PTC) and Anderson University (AU) signed a transfer agreement today that will provide prospective transfer students who meet eligibility requirements a seamless transition from PTC to AU and its nine colleges and schools supporting 36 baccalaureate degree programs. The agreement became effective upon its signing.

“This agreement represents an incredible opportunity for college students in our region,” said Dr. Evans P. Whitaker, president of Anderson University. “We are so appreciative of our friends at Piedmont Technical College, and we look forward to welcoming their students into the AU family.”

The agreement, which includes acceptance of transfer credits from PTC associate in arts and associate in science degree programs, establishes articulation pathways for PTC students seeking the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of Business Administration
  • Accounting Concentration
  • Business Administration Concentration
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Bachelor of Arts – Criminal Justice
  • Bachelor of Arts – Homeland Security and Emergency Service
  • Bachelor of Arts – Homeland Security and Emergency Service – Emergency Services Management
  • Bachelor of Early Childhood Education
  • Bachelor of Human Services
  • Human Services Concentration
  • Gerontology Concentration
  • Behavioral Health Concentration
  • Health Care and Human Services Management Concentration
  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing

 

“As a technical college, Piedmont Tech serves as an academic way station from which our students graduate and either go directly into the workforce or continue their educational journey at a four-year university,” said Dr. Jack Bagwell, vice president for academic affairs at PTC. “It is our responsibility to ensure that our transfer students have solid bridges to first-rate institutions where they can fully realize their dreams. We are extremely proud to add Anderson University to this vital infrastructure and look forward to sharing with our students the tremendous opportunities available at AU.”

PTC students who meet transfer requirements will be guaranteed admission to AU and be eligible for available merit and/or transfer scholarships. They also will enjoy access to the university’s library and Trojan athletic events, just as any other AU student would. AU also will waive the admissions application fee for students transferring from PTC.

“We are excited to implement this agreement enabling students who would like to attend AU to transition from ‘Tech to Trojan’ with ease,” Bagwell said. “Anderson University is exceedingly well-equipped to take them to the happy completion of their academic journey.”
