Commerce – Grayson County College (GCC) students can seamlessly transfer their Associate of Arts in Teaching credits into the Texas A&M University-Commerce Bachelor of Arts or Science Teacher Certification Program thanks to the signing of an articulation agreement on Tuesday at Grayson County College in Denison.
"We are very pleased with this articulation agreement with Grayson County College," said Dr. Dan R. Jones, A&M-Commerce president. "It's exciting to be able to take this relationship to the next level for students and their education."
The agreement becomes effective immediately and applies to students transferring from Grayson County College to A&M-Commerce beginning with the spring 2011 semester. GCC students who successfully complete the articulated courses as outlined in the agreement will transition into the A&M-Commerce program without loss of credits.
"This agreement allows those students who are interested in transferring to A&M-Commerce to be the most efficient in taking classes while they are on our campus," said Dr. Alan Scheibmeir, Grayson County College president. "We believe that this partnership has great potential for the future and certainly will provide our students in the North Texas area with a more seamless opportunity to receive their degree."
