About Macon State
Georgia Northwestern Technical College in Rome and Macon State College have entered into a partnership to promote academic opportunity for students through an articulation of transfer agreement.
The joint program allows transfer admissions opportunities for academically qualified graduates of GNTC’s Computer Information Systems (CIST) program, who are interested in completing their bachelor of science degree as an information technology major at Macon State.
The two colleges have identified the programs most suitable for articulation with Macon State as Computer Support Specialist, Internet Specialist-Web Site Design, and Networking Specialist. Other CIST degrees, diplomas, or certificates may be approved with a written agreement of the Deans at each college.
“Whenever we do something successful at GNTC, it’s because we focused on the students," said GNTC President Craig McDaniel. “This agreement puts the focus on the needs of our students and will provide them with a great opportunity to continue their education.”
Under the articulation agreement, students at GNTC who earn a grade of C or higher and meet specific admission and enrollment requirement standards will be accepted for admission into Macon State as a degree candidate for the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.
“These are historic agreements that we are signing today between the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia,” said Macon State President Jeff S. Allbritten. “These are the kinds of things we need to do to build pathways for students.”
Last fall, Macon State signed similar agreements with Central Georgia Technical and Middle Georgia Technical colleges.
