UNCG has announced two new co-admission agreements with Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) and Alamance Community College (ACC) to facilitate degree completion and bolster student success by improving access to undergraduate and graduate educational resources, university facilities and support systems.

Unlike other traditional four-year, community college co-admission agreements, the UNCG-GTCC-ACC partnerships are unique: the GTCC “G²” (Gsquared) partnership expands opportunities for transfer students to access and complete their baccalaureate degrees in a selection of popular majors. These efforts capitalize on two recent academic innovations:
  • First, the recent selection of GTCC and UNCG to participate in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Frontier Set project, which is focused on improving student success and postsecondary degree attainment;
  • Second, the ACC “Spartan Passage” partnership, which offers an accelerated master’s program in six different disciplines as well as a comprehensive undergraduate program.

“This new partnership is designed to bridge the gap for students in our state, making it easier and more affordable for them to get their degree in a shorter timeframe, and get them into the workforce sooner,” said UNC system President Margaret Spellings. “For students, for the business community, for our economy and beyond, this initiative is a win-win for the state of NC. Together, we are setting the stage for a successful future.”
