Texas Wesleyan University President Frederick G. Slabach and Tarrant Count College Chancellor Erma Johnson Hadley signed revised articulation agreements May 7 that will make transferring to Texas Wesleyan easy for students.
The articulation agreements are formal agreements between TCC and Texas Wesleyan that outline which credit hours are transferrable toward a degree plan. The agreements save students’ time and money by ensuring that completed courses at TCC count toward a Texas Wesleyan bachelor’s degree.
“We continue to grow our longstanding partnership with TCC to benefit students and the entire Tarrant County community,” Slabach said. “Together, we are simplifying the process of transferring into our bachelor’s programs.”
Hadley, alongside several TCC officials, visited the Texas Wesleyan campus for the signing, demonstrating their commitment to the schools’ partnership.
“The articulation agreements allow us to build on our already successful relationship with Texas Wesleyan University by further streamlining the process for Tarrant County College students to transfer to Texas Wesleyan when ready,” Hadley said. “We are serious about our role as advocates for our students and view this agreement as another opportunity to bolster their numbers beyond the current 50 percent who comprise Wesleyan’s transfer students.”
TCC Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree students will receive junior standing and credit for their Texas Wesleyan core classes. A student who completes the state Core Complete curriculum requirement of 46 hours receives credit for their Texas Wesleyan core. For many transfer students, a religion course may also be required, if not already taken.
Texas Wesleyan also launched the “Smaller. Smarter.” Promise Scholarship that offers free tuition to transfer students. The new scholarship will pay 100 percent of tuition for qualifying students who transfer from any regionally accredited college or university and have completed at least 42 credit hours.
