Texas A&M University - College Station (College of Veterinary Medicine)


Dallas County Community College District (hereafter referred to as "DCCCD") – specifically the following DCCCD campuses: Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Mountain View, and North Lake - and Biomedical Science (hereafter referred to as "BIMS") hereby agree to an educational partnership to create a seamless transfer process for students transferring the DCCCD’s Associate in College and University Transfer (ACUT) degree into Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science Program at TAMU. The ACUT degree must be granted by any one of the 4 (four) DCCCD colleges specified earlier in this passage.


In order to establish and facilitate the transfer process for our mutual students, we agree to the following:

DCCCD students who follow the recommended program of study – 67 credit hours specified in the 2+2 Articulation Agreement - and who meet all other admissions requirements will be automatically admitted into TAMU Biomedical Science program.

DCCCD and BIMS will jointly develop transfer guide(s), transfer admission and course equivalency guides, utilizing both DCCCD and TAMU course numbers, or the Texas Common Course Numbering System. By creating the transfer guide(s), DCCCD and TAMU assure students that courses listed in these guides are freely transferable between DCCCD and TAMU.

Representatives from DCCCD and TAMU will meet or make contact to exchange course catalogs and update course equivalencies, transfer guides and transfer admission information to be used the subsequent academic year.

A student transferring to TAMU under this agreement will have definite admission and acceptance of DCCCD academic credit hours, with the following conditions:

  1. Transfer students will receive academic credit for transferable college level courses only, completed with a grade of "C" or better. Remedial and developmental courses will not be accepted in transfer.
  2. The student must have a cumulative DCCCD GPA of 3.6 for admission to TAMU.
  3. Transfer students must enroll in a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester.
  4. TAMU will accept a total of 67 transfer credit hours from DCCCD.


This pilot agreement is committed to for five (5) years and commences fall 2004. The DCCCD, College of Veterinary Medicine Dean, or their designees must approve amendments to this agreement. This agreement is effective upon signing by the involved parties, and each is free to publicize this partnership in a manner consistent with the agreement.
