The University of Texas at Arlington announces renewed partnerships with the Arlington and Mansfield school districts and Tarrant County College to aid dedicated students on their path to earning a full bachelor's degree.

Through agreements signed July 23, 2012, the two school districts, TCC and UT Arlington pledge to provide additional staff and scholarship resources to guide students and families who want the highest quality education from high school through college.

The initiative will encourage high school students who complete 24 semester credit hours of dual credit college courses in their junior and senior years to advance to Tarrant County College to earn their associate degree. The high school college-credit courses allow students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously, with the potential to earn up to a year of college credit toward their undergraduate degree.UT Arlington and TCC admissions and academic advising staff will work with students to ensure that they take courses accepted toward their bachelor's degree from the four-year institution. High-performing transfer students would be eligible for a UT Arlington scholarship of up to $10,000. Read More
