Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, president of Georgia Military College (GMC), joined Dr. Timothy Mescon, president of Columbus State University (CSU), on February 21st to sign an articulation agreement that will allow GMC students to apply their associate degree credits toward CSU baccalaureate degrees.  GMC students will be able to transfer degree credits without losing credit hours, providing a more seamless transition to CSU.

“GMC is a liberal arts-based, two-year college. Although we serve 250 ROTC cadets (at the Milledgeville Campus), the vast majority of our students are typical community college students.  GMC has nine campuses throughout the state and serves about 12,000 students annually, many of whom go on to pursue baccalaureate degrees at four-year colleges and universities,” Lt. Gen. Caldwell noted. “CSU offers significant opportunities for our students to further their education.”
