Troy University and Southern Crescent Technical College have inked a deal that will afford students a clear pathway to a four-year degree.

The articulation agreement sets out which SCTC courses match with TROY courses, allowing students to know which provides transfer credits, thereby saving time and money when they transfer to TROY for a bachelor’s degree.

“We welcome the change for Southern Crescent Technical College students to seamlessly complete their undergraduate degrees at TROY,” said Dr. Lance Tatum, Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. “TROY can become a second home for SCTC students.” 

While SCTC students must still meet admissions requirements at TROY, the agreement paves the way for trouble-free academic progress. Under the terms of the agreement, SCTC students who have earned an associate degree will qualify for unconditional admission with a 2.0 grade point average on a minimum of 12 semester hours of college work attempted.

“We are excited about the opportunities that this agreement offers both our current students and graduates to seamlessly matriculate to Troy University,” said Dr. Alvetta Thomas, President of Southern Crescent Technical College. “This partnership and the expanded educational pathways it provides demonstrates the commitment both institutions have to creating meaningful educational opportunities for our students. At Southern Crescent Technical College, we are focused on helping our students reach all of their educational goals as we strive to build strong students, strong careers, and strong communities.”
