Historically Black North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro has partnered with Forsyth Technical Community College to create the Aggie Plus Program. The initiative will provide Forsyth students with a seamless transfer transition to complete their undergraduate education at North Carolina AT&T.

Forsyth Technical Community College is based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It enrolls about 7,750 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 23 percent of the student body.

Students participating in the Aggie Plus Program will receive targeted advising from faculty at both institutions, priority review in the admissions process, an orientation session at Forsyth Tech at the beginning of each fall semester, and a visit day at NCA&T during the spring semester.

“Forsyth Tech is excited to collaborate with N.C. A&T in the ‘Aggie Plus’ partnership,” said Forsyth Tech President Gary Green. “Having this strategic alliance will offer tremendous benefits to our students and to the community in demonstrating how higher education works together to improve student completion and success.”
