UNCG/GTCC dual admission on the horizon

UNCG and GTCC are co-developing a dual admission program agreement for two programs – psychology and business administration – with a pilot group of 30 students in each major.

The plan is that students would apply to GTCC and UNCG at the same time and be co-admitted. They would then start at GTCC and complete an Associate in Arts degree, then finish their BA program in Psychology or BS program in Business Administration at UNCG.

Students will be able to enroll in this dual-admission program in Fall 2014.

The collaborative program is designed for high school graduates as a lower cost, high value educational pathway that would be among the best values in higher education in the United States.

The business administration and psychology majors were chosen because of high interest among current transfer students from GTCC.

GTCC enrolls about 7,000 students in varied college transfer programs. Approximately 22 percent of the students who transfer to UNCG come from GTCC.

The UNCG/GTCC collaboration builds on GTCC’s dual-enrollment agreement with NC A&T State in engineering.

GTCC and UNCG officials met on Oct. 9 to continue planning.

Partners on the project include:
From UNCG – David Perrin, Steve Moore, Steve Roberson, Camy Sorge, Kacy McAdoo, Lise Keller, Deborah Tollefson, Debra Banks, Deb Hurley, Rick Titus, Nancy Bucknall, Peter Delaney, Rob Guttentag, Bill Brown, Gail Pack and Vicki McNeil
From GTCC – Beth Pitonzo, Connie Carroll, Kristi Short, Alison Wiers, Jesse Cross, Sanjay Ramdath, Keisha Jones and Ed Bowling
