GHC now offering an online bachelor of business administration transfer option with UGA
FROM UGA REPORTS:
Georgia Highlands College students now have the chance to use their GHC credits to apply for a new online completion program provided by the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.
Students are able to complete their Associate of Science in Business at GHC, either online or on campus, and then apply for UGA’s Online Bachelor of Business Administration.
Terry College’s program requires 60 hours of coursework, including specific classes, all of which are available at GHC. Once students have completed these requirements, they can apply to earn a degree through the Terry College’s Online BBA Program.
“We’re excited to offer our online program to Georgia Highland College students and alumni who meet the requirements and get accepted,” said Jessica Daniels, Online BBA Program Coordinator at Terry. “This is a fantastic opportunity for working professionals who want to complete their degree at UGA, but work or distance has gotten in the way. This degree completion program makes it possible for Georgia Highland students to become a part of our Terry College network.”
FROM GHC REPORTS:
Georgia Highlands College students now have the opportunity to transfer seamlessly into an online completion program provided by the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.
Students are able to complete their Associate of Science in Business at GHC either online or on campus, and then transition into UGA’s online Bachelor of Business Administration.
“The curriculum is designed for online students, but traditional students may take the same courses, as well,” said Leslie Terrell-Payne, senior academic advisor for eLearning and eCore liason. “Any GHC student majoring in business can transfer into this program, so long as they follow the curriculum as it is laid out.”
Terrell-Payne stated that GHC’s online programs demand excellent time management and communication skills that prepare students for what they can expect from UGA’s online bachelor’s degree.
“UGA’s Terry College of Business has one of the top business programs in the country,” she said, “so being able to transfer into it seamlessly with no additional coursework (at the lower level) is a tremendous advantage.”
Dean of eLearning Diane Langston stated that eliminating the need to travel to classes in Athens may be what piques students’ interest the most.
“We're already getting inquiries about this online completion program,” she said, “partly because it puts Terry College of Business within reach for students who cannot travel from our service area to Athens to attend."
A minimum of a 2.8 GPA is required to enter the program, she added.
Prospective students can review program sheets showing courses needed and pathways to completion on GHC’s website under eLearning: http://www2.highlands.edu/site/elearning-programs-and-courses
