Bainbridge- Under the first program, Bainbridge College has joined forces with Southwest Georgia State University. 

       It allows business students to earn their two year degree at Bainbridge. Finally they will receive a four year degree from Southwest Georgia, but don't have to leave Bainbridge College to do so. The coordinator for the program, David Barrett, says that's important for the city's economic base. "The industry in this area can educate their talent while retaining them here. And so it's a plus for the industry, and a plus for the community."

       The second program is in partnership with Albany State University. It's similar to the first one, but is tailored to early childhood education students.
