HGTC and Liberty University Sign Articulation Agreement
HGTC and Liberty sign agreement allowing students to successfully transfer for the completion of a four-year degree.
Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) and Liberty University have formed a partnership to enhance the transfer of business students from HGTC to Liberty. An articulation agreement was recently signed between the colleges to allow HGTC students in the Associate in Applied Science in Business Administration degree to easily transfer their credits and enter as juniors in Liberty’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program. Students who meet the requirements of the program will be guaranteed admission to Liberty University and receive priority acceptance into the major selected.
“HGTC is excited about this new partnership with Liberty University for our Business Administration students. Prior to this agreement, only a few business-related courses were direct transfers to Liberty,” said Theresa Strong, HGTC Academic Chair & Professor- School of Business Administration. “With the completion of HGTC’s Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Administration, students can transfer directly to Liberty and begin their Bachelor of Science in Business Administration as juniors.”
The agreement has been officially signed by both Jerry Prevo, President at Liberty University and Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, President at HGTC.
“Our new partnership with Liberty University helps both institutions honor commitments to develop a strong and able workforce through high-quality education,” said HGTC President, Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore. “This latest two plus two degree with Liberty is a wonderful opportunity for our local business students to begin with us and become empowered to lead satisfying and productive lives. The agreement not only benefits our students but also our entire area.”
