Texas Southern University Teams Up With Tarrant County College

Texas Southern University, the historically Black educational institution in Houston, has signed an agreement with Tarrant County College to facilitate the transfer process between the two institutions.

Tarrant County College enrolls more than 50,000 students on campuses in the Fort Worth area. African Americans make up 17 percent of the student body, according to the most recent data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education.

Tarrant County College Chancellor Eugene Giovannini notes that “we are opening the world to our students. Tarrant County College’s new partnership with Texas Southern University will streamline the transfer process by providing a seamless, cost-effective pathway for TCC students to earn a bachelor’s degree and enter the workforce. We expect TCC alumni to enjoy a seamless transfer experience, thanks to efficient course alignment and sequencing between the two institutions.”

Austin A. Lane, president of Texas Southern University, added that his university “will strengthen the bonds of higher education and serve more students through this partnership. Our cooperative effort will mean an increase in graduates with a baccalaureate degree that can serve Houston and the nation with an educated populace.”
