Advanced Manufacturing Students at Gateway Can Now Transfer Seamlessly to Sullivan
Gateway Community and Technical College and Sullivan College of Technology and Design in Louisville have created a transfer pathway that will allow Gateway associate degree graduates to obtain a bachelor’s degree in advanced manufacturing technology from Sullivan.
“We are pleased to offer yet another transfer pathway to our students,” said Dr. Laura Urban, Gateway provost and vice president of academic affairs. “The agreement means that students who meet the required criteria will advance seamlessly into the bachelor’s degree program at Sullivan.
“The new pathway joins more than 250 other transfer pathways that Gateway has established with 20 colleges and universities throughout the region,” Dr. Urban added. “For example, we have specific transfer pathways with Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More College, Xavier, University of Cincinnati, University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Eastern Kentucky University, and Kentucky State University, to name a few.”
Under the transfer agreement, Gateway associate degree graduates in certain manufacturing programs can receive transfer credit for their entire associate degree when beginning a bachelor’s degree program at Sullivan. For full credit, graduates must have a 2.0 GPA and a minimum completion rate of 67 percent of credit hours attempted.
Three Gateway programs qualify for the transfer pathway; they are manufacturing engineering technology, industrial maintenance technology and electrical technology.
Under a transfer agreement between the Kentucky Community and Technical College System and Sullivan, Gateway students who transfer to Sullivan will be awarded a $1,500 scholarship. The scholarship is renewable annually until the student completes his or her bachelor’s degree in advanced manufacturing technology. Sullivan will award up to 10 such scholarships a year.
Formerly known as the Louisville Technical Institute, Sullivan College of Technology and Design is a private, career-focused college accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools and licensed to offer associate and bachelor's degrees by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.
