Belton, Texas – On Monday, July 2, the presidents of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and Temple College gave their official approval to a plan that will help students save time and tuition dollars as they pursue their educations. Dr. Glenda O. Barron, president of Temple College, and Dr. Randy O’Rear, president of UMHB, took part in a signing ceremony to mark the completion of a new articulation agreement between the neighboring institutions.
Assisting in the ceremony were Dr. John Vassar, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at UMHB, and Dr. Susan Guzman-Trevino, interim vice president of academic affairs at Temple College.
“This agreement will make it possible for students completing their associate degree at Temple College to transfer seamlessly into completing a bachelor’s degree at UMHB,” said Vassar. “By analyzing the content of the freshman- and sophomore-level courses offered at both schools, we can now offer students a pathway of courses at Temple College that will fulfill degree requirements when they transfer to UMHB to complete their studies.”
“We are thrilled to facilitate for our students a seamless connection to programs offered at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor,” Guzman-Trevino said. “This agreement will ensure our students can stay close to home and complete their degrees efficiently.”
