Associate TSC graduates can progress to STC bachelor’s
Students earning an Associate of Applied Science Degree from Texas Southmost College in Brownsville can now transfer into bachelor’s degree programs at South Texas College. The colleges entered an articulation agreement for progression to the next level of course work leading to the higher degree.
“This has been a fairly quick process,” says Kelli Davis, STC University Relations officer. “TSC has been very eager to work with us. AAS degree seekers don’t have a lot of options for Bachelor’s degrees. Our programs are a great fit for them because they are tailored to applied science degrees.”
A signing ceremony took place on July 10 at the Texas Southmost College Arts Center. STC President Shirley A. Reed and TSC Interim President Mike Shannon signed the agreement.
“This agreement will allow AAS earners from Texas Southmost to matriculate into one of our four bachelor’s programs,” says Davis. “All the chairs for our Bachelor’s programs sat down and figured out what AAS degrees at TSC best fit into the programs here. We are hoping that we will able to recruit those students into our program.”
According to Davis, students may be able to transfer as many as 90 hours. All TSC courses completed in the Associate of Applied Science Degree are transferable to STC. They will satisfy the indicated course requirements leading to the first two years of course work in STC’s various Baccalaureate degree programs.
TSC students wishing to transfer must apply for admission with STC and meet all of STC’s entrance requirements. All courses for transfer must be complete with a “C” or better for acceptance into any one of STC’s Baccalaureate degrees.
