Partnership Improves Student Access to Undergraduate Education
UNC Greensboro (UNCG) today announced a new co-admission agreement with Forsyth Technical Community College (FT) to facilitate degree completion and student success by improving access to undergraduate educational resources, university facilities and support systems.
The UNCG-FT “Spartan Passage” partnership expands opportunities for transfer students, regardless of location, to access and complete their baccalaureate degrees in a selection of nearly 60 popular majors including Business Administration, Biology, Psychology, and Computer Science.
“Our new partnership will expand educational choices and improve access to resources for FT students,” said UNCG Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. “Together we will produce a greater number of qualified graduates in a shorter timeframe at a significant cost-savings. With on-site admissions and advising, we are ensuring each student’s individual academic, career, and financial needs are met while easing student transition between both institutions.”
“Forsyth Tech is excited to collaborate with UNCG in the “Spartan Passage” partnership,” said President of Forsyth Tech Gary Green. “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.”
Application for the “Spartan Passage” program has been streamlined to benefit students with 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, financial aid, among other benefits. You can find more information here.
UNCG launched four new co-admission partnerships with Guilford Technical Community College, Alamance Community College, Rockingham Community College, and Randolph Community College to improve student access to undergraduate and graduate education. The programs begin enrolling in Fall 2018.
