Texas Tech and Cisco College announce partnership

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Texas Tech University and Cisco College will enter into a partnership that will offer a Bachelor of General Studies degree at the Cisco home campus and extension campus in Abilene. The announcement was made Friday by the presidents of both institutions.

The partnership will create a new convenient undergraduate degree option for residents in the area.

"We are very excited to be able to partner with Texas Tech and offer this opportunity to our students in Cisco and Abilene," said Colleen Smith, Cisco College president. "This collaboration further strengthens our region by providing additional access to higher education."

Courses will initially be offered through distance education via online and interactive video conferencing. In-person instruction will be offered at a later date to be announced.

"This partnership only enhances what already is an outstanding educational program at Cisco College," said Guy Bailey, Texas Tech president. "We are proud to partner with Texas community colleges and extend the reach of Texas Tech's educational mission beyond our campus and give residents in these areas an opportunity to obtain a four-year degree."

The agreement also will allow Cisco College students to seamlessly transfer coursework to Texas Tech.
