Thursday, August 9, 2007

(L to R) Curtis Harkness of Greenville Technical College, Dr. George Bradley of Claflin University, Dr. Thomas Barton of Greenville Technical College, Dr. Ronald Barton of Shady Oak Baptist Church, Dr. Kay Rhoads of Morris College, Ray Lattimore of Greenville Tech's Multicultural Advisory Board, and Dr. Frederick Evans of South Carolina State University.Greenville Technical College and six of the state’s historically black colleges and universities signed an agreement today establishing closer ties and easier transfer opportunities. The agreement provides a stronger Upstate presence for Allen University, Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College, and Voorhees College while adding to the presence of South Carolina State University, which has been involved with Upstate students for many years through the University Center of Greenville.

This articulation agreement creates a seamless transition between Greenville Tech and the four-year colleges. Prescribed courses taken at Greenville Tech will be accepted by the four-year destinations, so the process is smooth and efficient.

Students can also save money on basic courses at Greenville Tech, where tuition and fees for Fall Semester can be reduced to $781 for Greenville County residents studying full time and qualifying for lottery tuition assistance.
