Montreat College has signed two articulation agreements with Gaston College, charting a seamless route for transfer students to earn a bachelor’s degree from Montreat College’s School of Adult and Graduate Studies (AGS).
In addition, a separate agreement allows Gaston College students who earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice Technology to enter Montreat College as a junior to earn their Bachelor of Science degree through Montreat’s criminal justice program.
The direct transfer agreement allows students who graduate from Gaston College with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Information Technology-Networking and Cyber Defense to register with junior class status at Montreat College to pursue their Bachelor of Science degree through Montreat’s renowned cybersecurity program.
“These agreements give our students in these ever-more important programs of study a smooth pathway to the excellent cybersecurity and criminal justice programs at Montreat College,” said Dr. Lisa Albright-Jurs, Dean of Career and Technical Education at Gaston College. “We are excited about this partnership between our two schools, and we look forward to collaborating on educating and training students for professional careers in these fields.”
“We are proud to collaborate with Gaston College in providing clear academic pathways for students to advance their education and careers at Montreat College,” added Dr. Paul Gratton, Interim Vice President for AGS at Montreat College. “We believe these agreements will make a significant impact in the lives of our students and contribute to their success in the workforce in two fields that play a crucial role in our society today.”
