Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Forms Agreement with Midland College

Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Forms Agreement with Midland College

COLLEGE STATION, TX - Administrators from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences entered into a "2 + 2" articulation agreement with Midland College, paving the way for students in West Texas to make their way to Texas A&M University.

"We are proud to partner with other educational institutions in our state in an effort to increase educational opportunities for students," said Dr. H. Richard Adams, dean of veterinary medicine.

Under the terms of the agreement, after two years at Midland College, those students satisfactorily completing the prerequisite courses would be admitted into the biomedical sciences undergraduate program at Texas A&M University to complete their degree.

"We're really excited about the opportunity that this agreement presents students in Midland and the surrounding region," said Dr. Margaret Wade, dean of math and science at Midland College. "It will begin to open more doors for our students than what many of them have had in the past."

Midland College is the eleventh college in the state of Texas that has signed an articulation agreement with the Texas A&M Biomedical Sciences program.

According to Dr. F. H. "Skip" Landis, assistant dean for biomedical sciences, 2 + 2 agreements benefit students in a number of ways.

"Students who attend one of the colleges that have a 2 + 2 agreement are able to start off their education closer to home," said Landis. "This can save money for them by often reducing their living expenses. For those students who are the first in their families to go to college, this can mean the difference between not going to college and earning a degree. After they successfully complete the prerequisites, they are then automatically admitted into the biomedical sciences program here at Texas A&M. Our program has established a legacy of successfully preparing graduates for and placing them in professional schools (veterinary medicine, medical, dental, etc.). Many of our students who arrived through the 2 + 2 program have returned to their hometowns to practice."
