A new transfer partnership agreement will create a streamlined path for Forsyth Technical Community College (Forsyth Tech) graduates to pursue a bachelor’s degree from Winston-Salem State University (WSSU).

Through the 2+2 agreement, graduates of Forsyth Tech’s associate in biotechnology program who want to advance their careers can transfer to WSSU with junior status – 60 or more credit hours – to pursue a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology.

“Winston-Salem State and Forsyth Tech have partnered for decades to provide quality, affordable and convenient education for residents in and around Winston-Salem,” said Dr. Anthony Graham, provost and vice chancellor of Academic Affairs for WSSU. “We are pleased to partner once again to provide another opportunity for students to advance their careers without leaving home. This new agreement illustrates WSSU’s commitment to providing access to baccalaureate degrees for North Carolina residents in critical workforce areas.”

The agreement was signed by WSSU Chancellor Elwood L. Robinson and Forsyth Tech President Janet N. Spriggs during a ceremony at Forsyth Tech on Thursday, Aug. 1. Graduates of the program can begin enrolling at WSSU’s biology program this fall.
