Tarrant County College, TWU sign transition agreements

Officials from Tarrant County College and Texas Woman’s University signed agreements Dec. 3 at TCC Trinity River Campus to facilitate the transfer of TCC students to the four-year institution. In the past decade, more students from TCC have transferred to TWU than from any other community college and former TCC students now comprises about 13 percent of TWU’s total newly enrolled transfer students.

“At TWU, one of our top priorities is to create effective and successful pathways for transfer students as they transition from community college to university, and then to the workforce,” said TWU Chancellor and President Carine Feyten. The institutions signed two agreements, one a general Memorandum of Understanding and the other an Honors Articulation Agreement for Cornerstone students who apply to the TWU Honors Scholars Program.
