ACC and UHCL Sign Articulation Agreement

ACC and UHCL Sign Articulation Agreement

Presidents from Alvin Community College and the University of Houston-Clear Lake signed an articulation agreement on Wednesday that will facilitate students wishing to transfer from an Associate Degree program to a Bachelors Degree.

This agreement establishes a transfer protocol that will create a clear pathway for ACC Associates of Arts graduates who want to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree at UH-Clear Lake.

“Students will be able to move on from Associate Degree programs in a variety of areas,” ACC President Dr. Christal M. Albrecht. “We look forward to our future success.”

This articulation agreement will benefit students who have earned an Associates Degrees in General Studies, Psychology, Computer Information Technology to Bachelors programs in Communication, Criminal Justice, Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Psychology. In order to transfer as a junior to UH–Clear Lake, students must be in good academic, behavioral and financial standing. They must complete their respective Associate Degree program as well as all lower level courses required for their Bachelors Degree.

UH-Clear Lake President Dr. Ira K. Blake said the agreement will allow students to transition into a Bachelor’s program.

“We see the role of public higher education in the same way,” Blake said. “We both believe that public higher education is about providing access to multiple opportunities that support life and career success.”

ACC launched its Pathways Program in 2016. Closely based on the current national Pathways Project led by the American Association of Community Colleges, the Pathways Project is an initiative to help achieve the 60x30 goal set by Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to have 60 percent of 25 to 34 year old Texans earn a certificate or degree by 2030.
