By creating an articulation agreement, students will smoothly transfer from Coastal Bend College to UT Permian Basin

The University of Texas Permian Basin strives to create partnerships with other universities and colleges to help students transition to our campus with ease. UT Permian Basin is excited to announce our newest articulation agreement with Coastal Bend College.

"This partnership is important so that we can serve students in our region and throughout the State of Texas. As a peer Hispanic Serving Institution who serves a rural student population, working closely with Coastal Bend College allows us to help students navigate the path to earn their baccalaureate degree and master’s degree. We are committed to being student-focused and responsive to our community. This agreement supports increasing the number of students attaining advanced degrees and education," said UT Permian Basin President Dr. Sandra Woodley.

"Coastal Bend College is excited to enter into this transfer agreement with UTPB. This is a wonderful opportunity for CBC students. What sets this agreement apart from others is - this addresses the “what’s next” question. Students who pursue this option will be uniquely positioned to continue their undergraduate and graduate degrees at UTPB," said Dr. Justin Hoggard, Coastal Bend College President.

By creating an articulation agreement, students will smoothly transfer from Coastal Bend College to UT Permian Basin, ensuring their credits come with them. This will help students graduate faster and save them money. UT Permian Basin has many similar articulation agreements with colleges in the region, including Odessa College, Midland College, Howard College, Tarrant County College, and others.

"This articulation agreement between Coastal Bend College and The University of Texas Permian Basin will ensure that the transition process for all students from one institution to another is seamless," said UTPB Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Zachary Suarez. "It will also ensure that students have a better understanding of the course requirements for a baccalaureate program at UTPB, thereby allowing them to save time and money by making the best course selection choices. Additionally, this articulation agreement ensures that students will have seamless pathways to graduate programs at the University as well. I am very excited about this important step toward expanding the opportunities that students in the Coastal Bend region will have through the world-class baccalaureate and master’s programs available at UTPB.”
