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.
