New UNCG Co-Admission Program: Fosters Student Success

Signing the UNCG and Forsyth Tech co-admission agreement are Dr. Joel Welch, vice president of instructional services, Forsyth Tech; Dr. Gary Green, president of Forsyth Tech; and Dr. Dana Dunn, provost and senior vice chancellor, UNCG.

On July 24, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) announced a new co-admission agreement with Forsyth Tech. This partnership aims to help students succeed by improving access to undergraduate educational resources, university facilities, and support systems. “We’re excited to collaborate with UNCG through the ‘Spartan Passage’ partnership,” said Gary Green, president of Forsyth Tech. “Having this strategic alliance will offer tremendous benefits to our students and to the community in demonstrating how higher education works together to improve student completion and success.” The UNCG Forsyth Tech “Spartan Passage” partnership allows transfer students to access and complete their baccalaureate degrees in nearly 60 popular majors, including business administration, biology, psychology, and computer science. On-site admissions and advising address each student’s academic, career, and financial needs while easing the transition between both institutions. The application process for “Spartan Passage” includes a waived application fee for UNCG; access to campus facilities, events, activities, and services, including the UNCG University Library (in-house and online); the new Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Health and Wellness; academic advising; and financial aid, among other benefits. Forsyth Tech has similar co-admissions agreements with Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, North Carolina, Bellevue University in Bellevue, Nebraska, and N.C. Agricultural and Technical State University.
