University of Texas at Arlington
College of Engineering
and
Richland College
of the Dallas County Community College District

The intent of this agreement between the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) College of Engineering and Richland College (RLC), of the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD), is to increase the number and quality of students matriculating from RLC into engineering disciplines at UTA.  Concomitantly, this agreement is designed to foster enhanced transfer processes for RLC students pursuing a bachelor degree in engineering.

This agreement recognizes the following terms and conditions:

  1. Representatives from UTA and RLC admission staff, academic advisors, and engineering faculty will collaborate to select students for the program and will provide advising to students in the program.
  2. UTA 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 Electrical Engineering will be able to transfer a block of 63 credit hours into the UTA Electrical Engineering degree.  The transfer courses must meet the UTA College of Engineering required GPA (2.5 in transferable hours) and the minimum grade per course (‘C’ or better) for transferring to the UTA College of Engineering.  UTA will accept all courses as outlined in the Richland / UTA Electrical Engineering Transfer Guide.
  4. RLC students successfully completing the Associate in Sciences with an Emphasis in Electrical Engineering program according to the Richland / UTA Electrical Engineering Transfer Guide and who maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 in transferable hours will gain automatic admission into UTA’s College of Engineering.
  5. The Richland / UTA Electrical Engineering Transfer Guide will be reviewed and updated by RLC and UTA faculty and advisors at least annually in September.  The Office of Transfer Services and University Relations at DCCCD, Dean of Engineering at RLC, and Dean of the College of Engineering at UTA will approve changes.
  6. The progress of this program will be monitored by both UTA 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.
  7. A copy of the Memorandum of Understanding and Articulation Agreement along with the UTA - RLC Equivalency Transfer Guide will be kept in the office of Transfer Services and University Relations at DCCCD, Engineering Department at RLC, and the Office of the Dean of Engineering in the College of Engineering at UTA.
  8. Annually, UTA and RLC will share data related to the enrollment, scholastic progress, and academic performance of former and active cooperative students in order to evaluate opportunities for improvement and the overall progress of this program.
  9. RLC and UTA 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.
  10. The faculty and administrators from UTA and RLC will meet annually to assess and develop program offerings; to schedule student and faculty class visits; and to explore potential joint grant funding.
