Albany State University Enters Into a Partnership With Oconee Fall Line Technical College

Historically Black Albany State University and Oconee Fall Line Technical College announced the establishment of a cooperative relationship that will provide opportunities for technical college students seeking four-year degrees.

The agreement between ASU and OFTC will provide educational advancement opportunities for OFTC students in the associate of applied science program to continue their education towards a bachelor’s degree at ASU. This partnership will strengthen the educational opportunities across the state and will create pathways for students pursuing a career in nursing, accounting, business management, technology management, criminal justice, early childhood education, chemistry, biology, and computer science.

OFTC transfer students with a minimum of 30 transferable credit hours of postsecondary coursework with a minimum 2.0 GPA will receive guaranteed admission as degree-seeking candidates if they fulfill additional requirements. Albany State University will provide transfer evaluation and advising to OFTC students through on-site, virtual, and/or telephone advising. Faculty advising by discipline also will be available to future transfer students.

“We are delighted to partner with OFTC to strengthen our pipeline in the central and eastern part of Georgia by providing a pathway for students to complete their baccalaureate degree. These agreements provide more than opportunities, they provide hope for students to reach their educational goals. ASU is committed to academic excellence and we welcome OFTC as our partner in education,” said Angela Peters, provost and vice president of academic affairs at Albany State University.

Oconee Fall Line Technical College in Sandersville, Georgia, enrolls about 1,850 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 44 percent of the student body.
