THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Two college governing boards are making it easier for technical college graduates to pursue four-year degrees.

The Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Independent College Association signed a Transfer Articulation Agreement in Atlanta.

All technical college graduates can now transfer 27 general education core classes to 19 private colleges across the state.

"We do a very good job of getting students and graduates into their career field, but once they are into the field they need to make they can advance their career even more. And I think it's because we are seeing more students statistically that are going on to get their bachelors and masters degrees," said SWGTC President Dr. Craig Wentworth.

Members of GICA participating in the agreement include the following:

Andrew College

Berry College

Brenau University

Brewton-Parker College

Covenant College

Emmanuel College

Georgia Military College

LaGrange College

Mercer University

Paine College

Piedmont College

Point University

Reinhardt University

Shorter University

Thomas University

Toccoa-Falls College

Truett McConnell College

Wesleyan College

Young Harris College
