FORT VALLEY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Fort Valley State University is helping students at a local technical college get a four-year degree.

The presidents of Fort Valley State University, Ivelaw Griffith, and Central Georgia Technical College, Ivan Allen, signed a "Plant Science Biotechnology agreement" Wednesday.

The agreement allows CGTC students who are studying Plant Science Biotechnology to continue their education at FVSU and graduate with a four-year degree.

Griffith says there are a couple advantages to the agreement.

“It means one, we are strengthening the partnership with Central Georgia Tech,” says Griffith. “It means two, we are expanding the pool for students
to come with specific intent."

In December, the schools signed a similar agreement for CGTC students to obtain Criminal Justice bachelor degrees.
