Surry Community College and Salem College have created an articulation agreement for the Digital Media Technology (DMT) – Graphic Design Associate in Applied Science degree program.

Students graduating from SCC in the DMT program will be able to transfer up to 60 credit hours to Salem's design programs. “This is a great opportunity for our design students at Surry to further their education at a four-year institution, ” explains Jay Smith, DMT Lead Instructor at Surry Community College.

Dr. Rosa Otero, the Art, Art History and Design Department Chair at Salem College stated, “I am delighted that this agreement is in place. I am looking forward to welcoming more Surry graduates into the Salem College community, in particular, to the design program. ”
