ECPI University Greenville and Greenville Technical College have signed an articulation agreement giving Greenville Tech graduates automatic admission into the following bachelor’s degree programs at ECPI University: mechatronics, cyber and network security, databased programming and business administration, according to a press release.
“We are extraordinarily pleased to enter into this partnership with Greenville Tech,” ECPI University Greenville President Karen Burgess said in a statement. “We believe this will benefit not only the students and our two schools, but the Upstate community as well. The economy here is on the upswing, especially in the tech sector.
“These programs represent areas of professional expertise and skill sets that are in great demand by employers. In fact, the benefits to the students are equally great as the vast majority of employers require a bachelor’s degree to ascend to management-level positions.”
For transfer students, the agreement provides scholarships of $1,500 per semester, no application or registration fees, and acceptance of most Greenville Tech credits.
“This articulation agreement allows our students to earn an associate degree, enter the job market with the skills to succeed, and then complete a bachelor’s degree so that they can advance. We are pleased to work with ECPI to prepare our graduates for excellent opportunities,” said Lenna Young, vice president for academic affairs at Greenville Technical College, in a statement.
