Historically Black Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida, has entered into an agreement in an effort to provide opportunities for Bethune-Cookman graduates to pursue graduate studies at the University of Tampa.

Under the agreement, Bethune-Cookman students must have a bachelor’s degree with specified teaching certification. These qualified students and alumni will receive special admissions consideration from the University of Tampa for its master’s degree program in curriculum and instruction, including waivers of application fees, references, and resumes.
