WACO (August 11, 2014) Baylor University and Blinn College signed a Baylor Bound transfer agreement Monday that will make it easier for students to transfer between the two institutions.
Blinn District President Harold Nolte and Baylor President and Chancellor Ken Starr signed the partnership agreement during a ceremony Monday at the Blinn-Brenham campus.
The university already has Baylor Bound partnerships with McLennan Community College in Waco and Tyler Junior College in Tyler and intends to create seven more partnerships with Texas community colleges over the next five years.
Blinn students will be able to participate in Baylor Bound Blinn starting in the fall of 2015 with the intent to transfer to Baylor in the fall of 2016.
Most students in the program will take one year of classes at Blinn and three years at Baylor, but some may be approved to spend two years at Blinn before transferring to Baylor for the remaining two years.
“Baylor and Blinn have long traditions of creating educational opportunities for Texas students and providing them the tools they need to be successful. This agreement gives our students a formal pathway into Baylor University and the opportunity of a lifetime,” Nolte said.
