Florida A&M University Establishes 2+2 Pathway Program With Hillsborough Community College

Historically Black Florida A&M University has partnered with Hillsborough Community College to create a 2+2 pathway program that will allow community college students to matriculate at Florida A&M University upon earning their associate’s degrees.

Hillsborough Community College is based in Tampa. it enrolls more than 23,000 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans are 18 percent of the student body.

Students participating in the pathway program will spend two years at HCC where they will complete core classes and receive an associate’s degree. They will then transfer to FAMU to complete another two years of courses and receive a bachelor’s degree. While these students can pursue a bachelor’s degree in any of FAMU’s 54 undergraduate programs, the new partnership will initially create a bridge for agriculture, business administration, education, environmental science, and pharmacy majors.

“The bottom line is some young people are going to have a wonderful experience coming to FAMU and going out into the world and making a difference as a result of this partnership between Hillsborough Community College and Florida A&M University,” said FAMU President Larry Robinson.
