BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb University and Greenville Technical College (GTC) in Greenville, S.C., recently signed agreements that allow 11 associate degrees earned at GTC to fully transfer to 10 bachelor’s degree programs at GWU. The associate degrees are in accounting, computer technology, management, marketing, supply chain management, criminal justice, paralegal, and human services. The bachelor’s degree programs that correlate are in accounting, computer information systems, management, criminal justice, organizational leadership, and human services.

“I am delighted by the opportunities presented by this new partnership with Greenville Technical College,” observed GWU President Dr. William M. Downs. “Gardner-Webb will work to ensure a smooth, seamless, and successful transition for all students wishing to continue their education with us.  We anticipate this being a strong and vital pathway for student success.”

The intent is to simplify the process of transferring for Greenville Tech students and assure them that all the credits they have earned apply directly to their intended major at Gardner-Webb. By moving from one level of education to another, students have a complete road map for their education from start to bachelor’s degree.

“This partnership with Gardner-Webb provides a clear path to success for our students,” said Dr. Keith Miller, GTC president. “By working together, Greenville Technical College and Gardner-Webb University can impact bachelor’s degree attainment rates, providing employers with a strong supply of graduates who are prepared for opportunities in business fields and giving the students we serve the education to qualify for these positions.”

GTC is a five-campus system where nearly 25,000 students are annually preparing for the strongest careers of today and tomorrow. Established in 1962, the college offers more than 100 curriculum program choices along with short-term training for career and personal development.
