STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
Dallas County Community College District and Amberton University hereby enter into the following agreement governing the matriculation of Dallas County Community College District students to Amberton University. This contract shall commence on September 1, 2010 and shall continue until such time as either or both institutions wish to terminate it. This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of students’ transfer from Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) (including all of the following DCCCD campuses: Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake, and Richland) to Amberton University (AMBU).

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
In order to facilitate and improve the transfer process for our mutual students, DCCCD and AMBU hereby enter into the following agreement: DCCCD students who follow the recommended program of study – the common core and transfer curriculum, and who meet all other admissions requirements shall be eligible for admission to AMBU. Transfer students must meet the same standards and criteria for admission to a major degree sequence as a native AMBU student.  AMBU and DCCCD will jointly develop Transfer Guides, Transfer Admission, and Course Equivalency Guides, utilizing both AMBU and DCCCD numbers for all majors offered at AMBU. By creating these guides AMBU and DCCCD assure students that courses listed in these guides are freely transferable between AMBU and DCCCD.  Representatives from AMBU and the DCCCD will meet or make contact as needed to update course equivalencies, transfer guides and transfer admission information to be used the subsequent academic year.

Note: Remedial/developmental or technical/vocational courses will not be included for transfer in this General Articulation Agreement from DCCCD colleges unless specified by individual colleges in a Program-to-Program Articulation Agreement.

A student transferring to AMBU under this agreement shall have acceptance of academic credit hours earned at DCCCD, with the following condition that the curricular and general conditions be met:

  1. Transfer students will receive academic credit for transferable college level courses only completed with a grade of "C" or better.
  2. There is no specific number of credit hours required for admission to AMBU as a student with junior class standing. AMBU is an upper-level institution primarily at the junior and senior levels only. Students must be 21 years old or older to apply.
  3. The student must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 for admission to AMBU.
  4. Students must complete 33 hours in residence at AMBU to receive a degree, however each degree requires 42 upper-level hours.
  5. AMBU shall accept a maximum of 78 credit hours in transfer from DCCCD.

AGREEMENT CONTINUATION AND DISSOLUTION

This agreement shall be reviewed on an annual basis or any time program changes are to be made by either institution. Any program changes will be identified and incorporated into subsequent agreements. The DCCCD Chancellor and the AMBU President, or their designees must approve amendments to this agreement. Any other modifications to this agreement may be made following written notice from the DCCCD Chancellor and the AMBU President, or their designees. Once this agreement is signed by the appropriate officials at DCCCD and AMBU, each is free to publicize this arrangement in a manner consistent with the agreement. This articulation agreement shall remain in effect until one or both institutions deem it necessary to terminate it. By signing each party recognizes the commitment to exchange only the most current and accurate information. This agreement may be terminated by either party by giving written notice of said party’s intention to the Chancellor of the DCCCD or his designee and the AMBU President, or his designee.
