Memorandum of Understanding and Articulation Agreement Pertaining to the Bachelor of Science Degrees in Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering

The University of North Texas
College of Engineering
and
Richland College
of the Dallas County Community Colleges

The intent of this agreement between the University of North Texas (UNT) College of Engineering and Richland College (RLC), of the Dallas County Colleges (DCCC), is to increase the number and quality of students matriculating from RLC into engineering disciplines at UNT. Concomitantly, this agreement is designed to foster enhanced transfer process for RLC students pursuing a bachelor degree in engineering.

This agreement recognizes the following terms and conditions:

  1. Representatives from UNT’s and RLC’s admission’s staff, academic advisors, and engineering faculty will collaborate to select students for the program and will provide advising to students in the program.

  2. The UNT College of Engineering faculty and staff will provide support to engineering faculty at RLC through the sharing of course syllabi and other pertinent ABET related material.

  3. Students who successfully complete the RLC Associate in Sciences with an Emphasis in Computer/Electrical Engineering will be able to transfer a block of 66 credit hours into the UNT Computer Engineering degree or 63 credit hours into the UNT Electrical Engineering degree. The transfer courses must meet the UNT College of Engineering core required GPA and the minimum grade per course for transferring to the UNT College of Engineering curriculum. UNT will accept all courses as outlined in the transfer guide.

  4. The UNT – RLC Equivalency Transfer Guide, attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference as Exhibit A, will be reviewed and updated by RLC and UNT faculty and advisors on at least a yearly basis. The Office of Transfer Services and University Relations at DCCC, Dean of Engineering at RLC, and Dean of the College of Engineering at UNT will approve changes.

  5. RLC students participating in the program will have rights and privileges as described in the UNT-DCCC Articulation Agreement (dated September 1, 2000).

  6. RLC students successfully completing the Associate in Sciences with an Emphasis in Computer/Electrical Engineering program according to the specified transfer guide and who maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 in transferable hours will gain automatic admission into UNT’s College of Engineering.

  7. The progress of this program will be monitored by both UNT and RLC and may be revised by mutual agreement at any time. Either party may terminate this agreement at any time when the said party believes that termination is in the best interest of all parties concerned. Those students already participating in the program at the time of termination will have their coursework honored.

  8. A copy of the Memorandum of Understanding and Articulation Agreement along with the UNT-RLC Equivalency Transfer Guide will be kept in the office of Academic Affairs and Transfer Programs at DCCC, Engineering Department at RLC, and the College of Engineering at UNT.

  9. Annually, UNT and RLC will share data related to the enrollment, scholastic progress, and academic performance of former and active cooperative students in order to evaluate the success of this program.

  10. RLC and UNT will collaborate on the design of marketing materials, which will be distributed to current students, potential students, or the community at large to publicize this agreement.

  11. The faculty and administrators from UNT and RLC will meet on an annually to assess and develop program offerings; to schedule student and faculty class visits; and to explore potential joint grant funding.
