College Station, Texas – The Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Weatherford College of Weatherford, Texas, have signed an agreement to facilitate the admission and academic transfer of students from Weatherford College into the Biomedical Science Program at Texas A&M University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
As Weatherford College students progress successfully toward the completion of the Associate of Arts degree, this agreement will ensure the seamless transition of qualifying students into the Biomedical Science program. Weatherford College students must complete the course requirements as full-time students, maintain a 3.60 grade point average in courses taken at Weatherford College and be eligible for their associate’s degrees. Additionally, students must not have made a grade below a B in any of their Common Body of Knowledge science and math coursework.
The agreement, signed by Dean H. Richard Adams from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Dr. Don Huff, President of Weatherford College, will become effective for the fall 2002 semester.
“Partnerships in education are one key to providing opportunities for our high achieving students,” Dean Adams said. “The College of Veterinary Medicine is pleased to join Weatherford College in offering this opportunity to students in the Weatherford area.”
“It is a unique opportunity for our students, and I am proud that Weatherford College can work with such a fine institution as Texas A&M University. Both Weatherford College and Texas A&M University students will benefit,” said Huff.
