Brenau, Lanier Tech agreements aim to help students transfer credits

By Austin Eller News Director

Brenau University and Lanier Technical College have signed two articulation agreements that aim to make it easier to transfer associate degree credits to Brenau for two degree areas.

One agreement facilitates transfers from Lanier Tech's Associate of Applied Science in interior design for students pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in interior design at Brenau. Brenau is one of five schools in Georgia with a professional-level interior design program that is approved by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation.

The second agreement allows students pursuing a degree in accounting or organizational leadership at Brenau to transfer credits from Lanier Tech or any of the 21 other technical colleges in Georgia.

“Brenau University is pleased to partner with Lanier Technical College to broaden higher education opportunities for students in our region,” Brenau President Anne Skleder said. “Brenau’s new strategic plan focuses both on student success and developing partnerships that allow us to help students reach their full potential. The agreements with Lanier Tech help us achieve these goals to the benefit of students who reside in this community.”

Tom McDonald, president of Lanier Tech, said the agreements can help students who want to pursue additional degrees.

“Lanier Technical College is proud of this expanded partnership with Brenau University,” McDonald said. “These articulation agreements will provide even more advanced career pathways for our students and citizens of our communities.”

The two agreements were signed on March 10 on Lanier Tech's campus.
