THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Georgia technical college students can now transfer more easily to a private university in Georgia. The Technical College System of Georgia signed an agreement with Mercer University.

Students who earn an associate's degree at a technical college can transfer their credits toward a bachelor's degree.

Southwest Georgia Tech President Dr. Craig Wentworth says the agreement will help their students. "We're getting more and more of our associate degree graduates who now upon completion of their associate degree are not ending their higher education there. Higher percentage and higher numbers are going in to four year institutions."

Southwest Georgia Tech is one of 19 schools that will benefit from the agreement. Candidates must meet all requirements for admission to Mercer University and the appropriate degree program.
