Stanley C. Stas Preczewski, today celebrated the signing of an articulation agreement that will benefit many of our students. This special agreement focuses on students seeking a bachelor`s degree in criminal justice. An articulation agreement, often referred to as a transfer agreement, is an officially approved agreement between two institutions, which allows students to apply the institutions acquired in certain programs of an institution with an advanced reputation, entry or transfer of a given program to another institution. Such agreements help students move from one institution to another by minimizing duplication. Because there are articulation agreements between institutions, they do not ask students to make individual arrangements. Gwinnett Technical College offers more than 150 degrees, diploma and certificate program options that can be completed in two years or less. Joint agreements are constantly negotiated and evaluated to make the transfer between institutions two to four years as smooth as possible. Gwinnett Technical College is hosting an annual transfer fair in February to inform its students about exciting transfer opportunities.
