Colleges sign agreement that allows for transfer among degree programs

Colleges sign agreement that allows for transfer among degree programs

March 15th, 2019 by Texas A&M University-Texarkana in Texarkana News

Officials from Texas A&M University-Texarkana and Northeast Texas Community College recently signed a new articulation agreement between the two schools. The agreement will combine the Associate of Science degree in business administration from NTCC with the Bachelor of Business Administration- Accounting degree from A&M-Texarkana.

Articulation agreements between tha two institutions have existed since 1999, when the original partnership was begun as part of a teacher preparation program. Articulation agreements are formal documents outlining how certain courses or paths of study can be transferred among and accepted between the two institutions to combine and complete a specific degree plan. While some of the NTCC students may take classes at the Texarkana campus, the biggest advantage for NTCC students is that most can complete their bachelor's degree program through A&M-Texarkana while still attending classes in Mount Pleasant.

There are currently 38 pathways by which students can seamlessly transition from their associate's degree at NTCC into baccalaureate programs at Texas A&M University-Texarkana.

"TAMUT continues to enjoy a productive relationship with NTCC," said Dr. David Yells, A&M-Texarkana provost. "We are excited to be able to continue expanding our pathways that enable students to seamlessly transfer from NTCC to TAMUT to complete their educational journey. We look forward to developing additional agreements of this sort."
