The University of Texas at Tyler announced today its partnership with Bossier Parish Community College to offer seamless pathways for students to earn baccalaureate degrees.

With the partnership, undergraduate students from BPCC will be able to transfer into selected undergraduate programs, such as industrial technology, at UT Tyler and take courses at the UT Tyler Longview University Center.

"This partnership will allow both institutions to meet students' academic goals. They can receive their associate's degree from Bossier Parish Community College and then transfer to UT Tyler to complete their bachelor's degree. Both institutions are working together to ensure student success," said Dr. Amir Mirmiran, UT Tyler provost and vice president for academic affairs.

Officials from both schools have worked to develop transfer documents that identify courses to be completed at each institution, financial assistance opportunities, degrees to be awarded and options for reverse transfer of credit.

A member of the prestigious UT System, The University of Texas at Tyler focuses on student success and innovative research in the more than 80 undergraduate and graduate degree programs offered. With more than 10,000 students, UT Tyler has facilities in Tyler, Longview, Palestine and Houston.
