On Thursday, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board announced the award of more than $650,000 to four public institutions, including Tarleton State University, for expansion of the Texas Affordable Baccalaureate program. Other recipients are Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, South Texas College– in partnership with Austin Community College– and Texas A&M-Commerce. The funds will support the planning, development and implementation of the institutions’ new affordable baccalaureate programs.
Tarleton State will use its allocated grant funds to evaluate and implement alternative credit courses to reduce costs and time-to-degree for students in its bachelor of science in applied science program.
