While an official MOU is in place with SWGaTC, individuals in the southwest Georgia region who are seeking to complete a degree program in ECEC or complete certification in the field can take advantage of this partnership.

 

  • South Georgia College – The College of Education works with SGC to ensure those students who receive an associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grades Education or Special Education can transfer to an ASU program of study to complete the bachelor’s degree and receive recommendation for certification.

  • Albany Technical College – The College of Education works with ATC to ensure those students who receive an associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education can transfer to ASU’s ECEC program of study to complete the bachelor’s degree and receive recommendation for certification.

Additionally, ASU representatives make recruitment presentations to Darton students each semester. ASU, DSC and ATC students tour area elementary, middle and high schools, as well as the local community, to not only learn expectations of the classroom, but to also become culturally aware of students’ backgrounds and living conditions.
