Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) and Millsaps College (Millsaps) hereby enter into the following agreement governing the matriculation of DCCCD students to Millsaps.  This contract shall commence immediately upon execution of the agreement, 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 DCCCD (including all the following DCCCD colleges: Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake and Richland) to Millsaps.


In order to facilitate and improve the transfer process for our mutual students, DCCCD and Millsaps 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 admission requirements shall be eligible for admission to Millsaps.

Millsaps and DCCCD will jointly develop transfer guides, transfer admission, and course equivalency guides, utilizing both Millsaps and DCCCD numbers.  By creating these guides, Millsaps and DCCCD assure students that courses listed in said guides are freely transferable between Millsaps and DCCCD.

Representatives from Millsaps and DCCCD will meet or make contact during August of each year 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 Millsaps under this agreement shall have acceptance of academic credit hours earned at DCCCD, with the following conditions that the curricular and general requirements are met:

  1. The student must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.5 or better in at least 42 credit hours.  Students wishing to transfer with less than a 2.5 G.P.A. and/or with fewer than 42 hours credit will be considered on an individual basis.
  2. Transfer students who intent to major in the performing arts of Music or Theatre must audition.
  3. Students must complete at least 64 credit hours in residence at Millsaps.
  4. Millsaps shall accept a maximum of 64 credit hours in transfer from DCCCD.
  5. Transferability of courses not listed in the course equivalency guide will be at the discretion of Millsaps.
  6. The office of the dean of enrollment management will serve as the point of contact between Millsaps and DCCCD.


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 Millsaps 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 Millsaps president, or their designees.  Once this agreement is signed by the appropriate officials at DCCCD and Millsaps, 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.

This agreement shall be in effect immediately upon execution of the agreement.
