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 the 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 of them can complete their bachelor’s degree program through A&M-Texarkana while still attending classes in Mt. 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.”
