Wednesday, August 18th, 2021

On Monday, August 16, 2021, an agreement was signed between Southeastern Community College (SCC) and the University of Mount Olive (UMO). The agreement guarantees admission for Agribusiness Technology students into UMO.

SCC President Dr. Chris Englsih and UMO VP for Academic Affairs, Dr. Todd Telemeco signed the UMO Promise agreement.

“This represents a key pathway for students to start at SCC and finish at UMO,” said Dr. Todd Telemaco.

SCC students who fulfill the following criteria will be guaranteed admission into the Agribusiness Technology program at UMO:

    • Complete the UMO Application for Admission
    • The student completes 60 credit hours from an Associate in Science, Associate in Arts, or an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) for the Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness Technology program.
    • The student must submit a UMO admissions application, provide supplemental documents, and meet admissions requirements as stated in the UMO Undergraduate Catalog including a 2.0 or higher GPA.

“We are excited about this transfer agreement,” shared Dr. Chris English, President. “This is important for our students as they look for next step transfer options after graduating from SCC and many have asked about opportunities at UMO. Now they have that seamless transfer option.”

Options in the Agriculture program at UMO include Agribusiness, Agricultural Education, Agricultural Production Systems, and Animal Science.

“SCC has a great Agribusiness Technology program. Students who transfer to UMO will have a seamless experience with a variety of program options. We pride ourselves on our 100% placement rate within 6 months,” said Dr. Sandy Maddox, Dean of Agriculture and Biological Sciences. “Students that earn their BA/BS degrees from UMO are able to find a job. Agriculture in Eastern North Carolina is huge and there are plenty of options to gain that type of employment opportunity.”
