Transfer Partnership Summit

Under the leadership of former President Pastides and President Rhames, 2021 initiated increased collaboration between Midlands Technical College and the University of South Carolina in transfer articulation activities.  Stakeholders from MTC and USC met candidly and collaboratively to discuss the current transfer process between the two institutions.  The results of those conversations created a global MOU that provides structure and consistency managed within the Provost’s Office to establish direct transfer tracks for students who begin their college experience with MTC with plans to transfer to USC.  The direct transfer tracks promote associate degree attainment prior to transition to USC and guaranteed admissions to USC to those students who meet admissions requirements.
