While at Midlands Technical College, students can earn credits toward their associate degree while receiving guidance in transfer admissions, financial aid and scholarship opportunities from Newberry College representatives. Transfer consideration to Newberry College generally requires at least 24 semester hours of transferable work for traditional students and at least 60 semester hours of transferable work for students wishing to enter the fastFORWARD programs in Organizational Management or Early Childhood Education. Individual fastFORWARD students may have lesser requirements. While it is anticipated that students will spend at least a full year at Midlands Technical College, students meeting Newberry College’s freshmen admissions requirements may transfer after one semester. Both Newberry College and Midlands Technical College will promote associate degree attainment to interested students by encouraging students to either complete their associate degree at MTC or by transferring credits back to MTC from Newberry.
Students who are admitted to the fastFORWARD accelerated degree completion program have the opportunity to complete the remaining courses for their baccalaureate degree in an accelerated timeframe. Classes for the fastFORWARD program are offered in a blended online and on-site format. Organizational Management on-site courses are offered in the Columbia area.
