Transfer Agreements

Spartanburg Methodist College is designed to build a strong academic foundation. For your continued success, we’re proud to offer a variety of connection programs with four-year institutions across the southeast. Currently, we’re engaged in the following agreements:

Articulation Agreements - Agreements between schools to accept course credits in transfer toward a specific academic program.

Bridge Programs - Assistance programs designed to help students achieve a four-year degree, following graduation with their two-year associate’s degree. These programs target transference to specific schools; SMC partners primarily with Wofford College,  College of Charleston, Converse College, and Presbyterian College for students wishing to continue to a four-year degree.

Direct Connect - An immediate connection program Spartanburg Methodist has with USC-Upstate. This program allows a student to jump directly to USC-Upstate for their junior year, following completion of their Associate’s degree at SMC.
