The Citadel announced it is partnering with 11 of the state’s technical colleges to allow students to transfer to The Citadel after completing two years at a participating technical college.
“The partnerships will give students greater flexibility and choice and will make The Citadel’s outstanding leadership development program available all across the state of South Carolina,” said Bob McNamara, associate dean of evening undergraduate studies at The Citadel.
The program, named 2+2, allows students to earn an associate degree and college credits toward a four-year degree from The Citadel.
Degrees offered in the joint program include business administration, criminal justice, electrical engineering and civil engineering.
The program started in the 1980s with a partnership with Trident Technical College in Charleston. It has now expanded to: Horry-Georgetown Tech, Midlands Tech, Florence Darlington, Piedmont, Northeastern Tech, Spartanburg Methodist College, Spartanburg Community College, Aiken Tech, Orangeburg-Calhoun and Technical College of the Lowcountry.
Classes will be offered online, on the weekends and through distance learning. Traditional classes will be scheduled from 5:45 to 8:45 p.m., one night per week.
