TCCD, UTA to Announce New Early Admissions Program to Help More Transfer Students Earn Bachelor’s Degrees

Tarrant County College District and The University of Texas at Arlington will announce an innovative and collaborative partnership designed to increase the number of North Texans with a college degree during a Memorandum of Understanding signing event.
The Early Transfer Identification Program, or E-TIP, enables the two institutions to identify prospective transfer students early in their academic careers, guide each student along a clear pathway to a college degree and help students achieve their degrees at a price they can afford.
E-TIP is a critical component of Tarrant County’s response to the state’s 60x30TX plan, which calls for at least 60 percent of Texans ages 25 to 34 having a college degree or a certificate by 2030. Currently, about 38.5 percent of young Texans hold a degree or certificate.
UTA President Vistasp M. Karbhari and TCCD Acting Chancellor Angela Robinson will be joined by Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley; Tarrant County Commissioner Andy Nguyen; Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Erik Wilson; TCC Trinity River Campus President S. Sean Madison; and Joy Gates Black, TCCD Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Student Success.
