ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Interactive College of Technology (ICT) and DeVry University are partnering to provide a seamless pathway for ICT graduates who earn their associate degree to continue their academic journey towards a bachelor’s degree at DeVry. The transfer agreement also provides a complimentary course to prepare for college, tuition savings, and waived application fee for ICT alumni, faculty and staff in addition to the credit transfer pathway.
Since 1982, ICT has been committed to student success by offering a low student-to-instructor ratio, hands-on skills training, and industry certifications to help graduates achieve their goals.
“Now more than ever, we are seeing companies embracing employees working from home, and in order for those entering the new virtual workforce to compete they will need training and technology skills,” said Thomas Blair, ICT president. “ICT has a rich history of reaching an underserved market to prepare students with the skills needed for this fast-paced changing world, and we believe DeVry’s commitment to students mirrors ours.”
Students who transfer to DeVry can earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting, business administration, computer information systems, healthcare administration management and technical management, either online or at their Alpharetta and Duluth locations. They are immediately assigned a Student Support Advisor who works one-on-one with students for course selection, academic planning, financial aid, and graduation requirements.
“We are pleased to work in collaboration with ICT in making the academic transfer process seamless for students to continue their education,” said Shantanu Bose, Ph.D. provost and chief academic officer at DeVry University. “The partnership also invites ICT to engage in our talent development initiatives such as talent acquisition support, professional development and skills gap training.”
The partnership with DeVry also allows five ICT managers the opportunity to enroll in DeVry’s Accelerated Leadership Basics, a three-module program that provides strategic skills development to support their professional growth.
DeVry has transfer agreements with six other Georgia colleges and universities to offer students opportunities to pursue advanced degrees. Visit https://www.devry.edu/admissions/transfer-applicants/georgia.html for more information.
