A&M-Texarkana to Celebrate National Transfer Student Week

Published: October 6, 2017

Texas A&M University-Texarkana will celebrate the first-ever National Transfer Student Week, Oct. 9-13, on the A&M-Texarkana campus and with its many community college partners throughout the Ark-La-Tex region.

Initiated by the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students, National Transfer Student Week is designed to celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them.

Throughout the week, A&M-Texarkana will recognize students who have transferred to A&M-Texarkana and highlight its partnerships with Texarkana College, Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant, Paris Junior College, the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana, Cossatot Community College of the University of Arkansas and many other two-year colleges in the region.

A&M-Texarkana will celebrate National Transfer Student Week at Texarkana College Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. with popcorn and prizes, said Katelyn Sloan, coordinator of the Community College Transfer Center on the Texarkana College campus.

“We look forward to visiting with future Eagles in celebration of the inaugural National Transfer Student Week,” Sloan said. “Stop by the Compass Center in Palmer Memorial Library at Texarkana College to join in on the fun.”

Activities, including a daily popcorn social, also are planned at the A&M-Texarkana location on the NTCC campus in Mount Pleasant.

“Since 1999 A&M-Texarkana and NTCC have had a strong academic partnership in helping students achieve their higher education dreams,” said Kelly Coke, director of programs at A&M-Texarkana at NTCC.

“Once students graduate with an associate degree from NTCC, they can seamlessly transfer to A&M-Texarkana at the main campus in Texarkana or at the NTCC campus through several academic articulation agreements between NTCC and A&M-Texarkana.”

Coke said the A&M-Texarkana presence is also strong on the Paris Junior College campus.

In 2014, PJC and A&M-Texarkana reunited their educational partnership to help serve more PJC students in earning a bachelor’s degree after they complete their associate degree with PJC,” Coke said.

A&M-Texarkana has articulation agreements with a number of additional community colleges that provide seamless opportunities for transfer for their students upon completion of associate degrees.
