Gaston College and Johnson C. Smith University recently entered an important agreement.

According to college spokeswoman Linda Vespa, it means facilitating direct-entry transfers from Gaston College to JCSU, thus making the dream of a bachelor’s degree that much easier for many students to bring to fruition. JCSU President Clarence Armbrister and Gaston College President John Hauser were among the officials on hand at the recent signing ceremony. Also signing were Dr. Karen Morgan, the senior vice president of academic affairs at JCSU, and Dr. Heather Woodson, the vice president of academic affairs at Gaston College. The direct admission program, “JCSU Two-Plus-Two,” took immediate effect on Aug. 5.

This is the first such agreement between Gaston College and an historically black college or university. To qualify for the program, students must complete the program inquiry form, which may be found on the Websites of both Gaston College and JCSU; be in good standing at Gaston College and other institutions attended; demonstrate good citizenship and conduct; and earn and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in their college coursework at Gaston College. Students must complete their associate’s degree in the academic year immediately prior to their desired entry term (fall or spring) at JCSU.

All students who remains eligible during their time at Gaston College and who successfully apply to JCSU will receive at least $8,000 each in university aid. Enrolling in a full-time course load is required.

Armbrister said he was very pleased.

“Johnson C. Smith University has been a leader in providing educational access for diverse traditional and non-traditional students in the Charlotte region for more than 150 years,” he said. “We look forward to enrolling the highly talented and motivated students who earn their associate’s degrees from Gaston College and providing them with an affordable, clear path to earn their bachelor’s degrees and the pursuit of rewarding careers. This partnership is a tangible way JCSU and Gaston College can work together to increase economic upward mobility in Gaston and Mecklenburg counties.”

Hauser shared that assessment of the “JCSU Two-Plus-Two” program.

It is, he said, “a wonderful opportunity for us. This new agreement will provide a smooth transition for Gaston College students from all backgrounds to successfully transfer and pursue a bachelor’s degree at Johnson C. Smith University. Our focus is to ensure qualified students are well prepared academically so they can excel at JCSU and that after graduation, they can successfully enter the work force.”
