Students transferring from Tarrant County College to the University of North Texas are now automatically eligible for a scholarship that could reduce their tuition costs. Both higher education institutions recently announced the new UNT Transfer Excellence Scholarship, which offers TCC students another way to save money to study locally.
UNT Transfer Excellence Scholarships are available to eligible undergraduate students with a proven track record, seeking transfer to UNT for the first time. These two-year awards range from $1,500 to $4,000 per year based on transfer cumulative GPA. For example, the Summit Award provides $4,000 for students with a 3.75-4.0 GPA; the Triumph Award provides $3,000 for students with 3.5-3.75 GPA; and the Impact Award provides $1,500 for students with a 3.0-3.49 GPA. As a special bonus, TCC students with an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree with a 3.0 transfer GPA or higher will qualify for a one-time $500 bonus award. The student must meet UNT admission standards.
This scholarship program serves as another example of how TCC remains committed to partnering with other higher education institutions to provide an array of affordable, seamless academic pathways for students to stay within the region as they complete their academic journeys.
UNT consistently receives large numbers of transfers from TCC. In the Fall of 2018, 567 students transferred to UNT, the second greatest number of transfers from TCC. Transfers with an associate degree from TCC succeeded at a slightly higher rates rate than transfers from the other top ten largest community colleges in Texas.
TCC currently has more than 80 transfer agreements with four-year institutions throughout Texas and across the nation. To view a list of those transfer agreements, visit here.
