June 17, 2024 marked a significant milestone for Forsyth Tech as we entered into a transfer agreement with Western Governors University (WGU), an innovative online institution. This partnership aims to provide Forsyth Tech graduates and employees with flexible, personalized learning pathways to higher education and professional development.

Under the terms of the agreement, Forsyth Tech graduates will receive credit for their completed coursework, enabling them to transfer seamlessly to WGU. This streamlined process allows students to pursue bachelor’s degrees or professional certificates with ease, building on the foundation they established at Forsyth Tech.

In addition to the transfer credits, the agreement offers Forsyth Tech graduates, staff, and faculty the opportunity to apply for WGU Community College Partner Scholarships. Each scholarship is valued at $2,500, providing substantial financial support for those looking to further their education. With tuition for most WGU bachelor’s degree programs averaging around $4,000 per six-month term, these scholarships significantly reduce the cost of obtaining a degree.

This agreement with WGU showcases our commitment to providing our students and employees with the best opportunities for continued education and professional growth. The flexibility and affordability of WGU’s programs make it an ideal choice for our community
