Upon successful completion of the Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degree, a graduate can transfer to a four-year college or university. There are also many career opportunities that require an A.A. or an A.S. degree, allowing the graduate to enter the workforce. Piedmont Technical College’s A.A. and A.S. programs are flexible enough for students to tailor their coursework to the requirements of the four-year college or university they have chosen. Entrance requirements for transfer students vary widely among senior colleges and universities. Only the institution to which the student is transferring can determine which credits will be accepted. Students are encouraged to obtain catalogs from their prospective four-year colleges to assist in course selection. While it is the responsibility of each student to plan a program of study to meet the requirements of the institution to which the student plans to transfer, informed academic advisors are available to assist students in their course selections. Students must complete their courses at Piedmont Technical College with grades acceptable to the college to which they request admission and transfer of credit. Generally, most courses with a final grade of less than “C” will not transfer to four-year institutions, and some institutions require an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher for admission.
