Tarleton and Tarrant County College Sign Agreement

On June 12, 2012, Tarleton State University and Tarrant County College signed an agreement that will enhance the relationship between the two institutions.   The ceremony was held at the TCC Trinity River East Campus, a facility situated on the banks of the Trinity River, which offers a beautiful view of north Fort Worth and the river itself.  Purple and white balloons danced in the wind as they marked parking spaces  for visitors from Tarleton.  Numerous attendees from both TCC and Tarleton enjoyed a brief ceremony which began with the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner.  

The ceremony culminated with the signing of the mutual agreement by Tarleton’s President, Dr. Dottavio, and TCC’s Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, David Wells.

TCC’s mascot, Toro, and Tarleton’s mascot, The Texan Rider, also shook hands.

Students will be able to take advantage of dual enrollment.  Credits will transfer more easily from TCC to Tarleton in order for students to fulfill degree requirements.  Tarleton currently offers the lowest cost tuition in the Metroplex which will be a real advantage for students who want to further their TCC education by earning a bachelor’s degree at any of Tarleton’s campuses.  The Southwest Metroplex campus offers degrees in business, accounting, education, criminal justice, social work, psychology, engineering and industrial management, and computer systems.  Nursing degrees will be added through classes offered at TCC.
