CHANDLER, Ariz., Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC), a leading provider of fully online higher education, has launched new partnerships with two community colleges in the heart of Texas. Temple College and Central Texas College (CTC) have formed separate partnerships with UAGC to provide an opportunity for all Temple and CTC associate degree alumni, staff, faculty, and employees’ family members to receive a tuition savings† of up to $6450 per calendar year towards a bachelor’s degree.
“These purposeful relationships will ease the transition from an associate degree to online bachelor’s degree program.”
Applications will be accepted beginning Monday, January 17, 2022 by visiting the following links:
Central Texas College
Temple College in Temple, TX, and Central Texas College in nearby Killeen, TX, have approximately 27,000 and 20,000 enrolled students respectively, and the partnerships of each with UAGC provide greater educational opportunities and services for many of these students interested in taking the next step in their education journey by obtaining a bachelor’s degree.
“We’re proud to partner with both Central Texas College and Temple College by providing a path that makes it more accessible and affordable for their students to continue their higher education,” said UAGC President Paul Pastorek. “These purposeful relationships will ease the transition from an associate degree to an online bachelor’s degree program, providing greater educational opportunities and services for students transferring between institutions.”
According to CTC, the partnership with UAGC represents one more opportunity CTC students have for a smooth transition to a four-year university and easy transferability of successfully completed college-level credits.
“Both institutions (CTC and UAGC) enter this agreement, which supports the concept of a seamless transfer for CTC students looking to continue their higher educational pursuits,” said Jim Yeonopolus, CTC Chancellor. “We both believe transfer students should not be required to repeat competencies already achieved, and this will ultimately save money and enable students to complete their degree programs quicker.”
UAGC has 50+ programs and there are no restrictions on the types of degree programs benefit recipients can pursue through the Forbes School of Business and Technology® or the College of Arts and Sciences at UAGC, providing adult learners with the flexibility, support, and a community to achieve the goals that will help them reach their fullest potential.
“Temple College is committed to providing our students with access to even greater educational opportunities, and this partnership with UAGC allows that to happen,” said Dr. Christy Ponce, Temple College President.
Students who transfer to UAGC after earning an associate degree from CTC or Temple may receive savings up to $6450 per calendar year on tuition towards a bachelor’s degree with the College Partner Benefit. Additional benefits are available for students using Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits. More information can be found at SUCCESS.UAGC.EDU/CTC and SUCCESS.UAGC.EDU/TEMPLE.
†Savings on tuition and fees available for those who qualify. Benefits vary by degree level.
