By AccessWDUN Staff

The leadership of Lanier Technical College and Piedmont College signed an articulation agreement that creates new education opportunities for Lanier Technical College students who graduate with an associate degree in Early Childhood Care and Education.

Under the agreement signed on December 18, 2019, students who successfully complete and are awarded their Associate of Applied Science degree from Lanier Technical College in Early Childhood Care and Education can transfer their college credits toward a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education (to be changed to Elementary Education as of August 2020).

“We are thrilled to enter into his agreement with Piedmont College. We are excited for the opportunities it brings our graduates. We hope that this is the first of many articulation agreements we will sign with Piedmont College, said Dr. Ray Perren, President of Lanier Technical College.

"Piedmont College is very excited to partner with Lanier Tech to provide students a viable path to completing a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education so they can fulfill their dreams of becoming elementary school teachers.  We look forward to welcoming Lanier Tech graduates at Piedmont and to pursuing articulation agreements with Lanier Tech in other program areas in the near future", noted Dr. Dan Silber, Vice President for Academic Affairs for Piedmont College.

This partnership between Lanier Technical College and Piedmont College will provide valuable opportunities that increase the accessibility of higher education throughout the area. Piedmont College has offered upper-level courses in Early Elementary Education for several years. This articulation agreement will help expand access to those opportunities and help provide more individuals the chance to obtain a higher degree.
