Officials at Salem College and Forsyth Technical Community College are partnering on a new tuition agreement. 

Beginning this year, some Forsyth Tech students will be able to move on to Salem without paying more for tuition than they are at the community college.

Under a plan called the “Salem Advantage,” Forsyth Tech students who earn an associate degree can move on to the women’s undergraduate school with tuition that doesn’t exceed $3,000 a year.

Currently at Salem, tuition and fees for commuting students are about $32,000.

Summer McGee is president of Salem College. She says the partnership will provide opportunities for social mobility and empowerment of women.

“Salem Advantage gives these students a chance to join the Salem family during their educational journey at Forsyth Tech and to find a seamless and affordable way to earn their degree from Salem,” she says.

Salem officials recently announced that the school had the highest number of applications in its history for a third straight year.
