FORT WORTH, Texas (Dec. 3, 2014) –Tarrant County College and Texas Woman’s University officials Wednesday signed agreements at TCC Trinity River Campus to facilitate the transfer of TCC students to the four-year institution.
“We are here today to establish two formal agreements that provide students a clear pathway to follow as they transfer from Tarrant County College to Texas Woman’s University in pursuit of their life and career goals,” said Joy Gates Black, TCC vice chancellor for Academic Affairs and Student Success.
In the past decade, more students from TCC have transferred to TWU than from any other community college and now comprises about 13 percent of TWU’s total newly enrolled transfer students.
“At TWU, one of our top priorities is to create effective and successful pathways for transfer students as they transition from community college to university, and then to the workforce,” said TWU Chancellor and President Carine Feyten.
As part of TCC’s ongoing commitment to student access and success, the two higher education institutions signed two agreements. One is a general Memorandum of Understanding between TCC and TWU and the other is an Honors Articulation Agreement for Cornerstone students who apply to the TWU Honors Scholars Program.
“Articulation agreements are often complex and require teams of people working collaboratively over a period of time to make all of the details work for the benefit for our students,” Black said. “Because of the excellent work by each partner, students now have a simplified, guaranteed process for transferring to Texas Woman’s University.”
