Coordinating board program will help former students complete degree

UNT is one of eight Texas universities participating in a new program, Grad TX, which is designed to help adults return to college and finish their bachelor’s degrees. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board announced the launch of Grad TX Aug. 2.

Grad TX targets the more than 40,000 adults in Texas with 90 or more credit hours but have not finished the 120 credit hour requirement to receive a bachelor’s degree.

UNT currently offers two bachelor of applied arts and sciences degree programs in the College of Information and the College of Public Affairs and Community Service.

The Grad TX website features an online transfer tool that allows returning students to enter completed coursework to determine its application to earning a bachelor’s degree at a participating university. The program offers specialized programs with online, compressed and regular course offerings for returning students.

The website also connects returning students to counselors, who will help determine how students’ work experience could count toward a bachelor’s degree. Grad TX includes information about paying for college and financial aid, and information for veterans.

Participating universities are the UNT System and:

  • Lamar University
  • Midwestern State University
  • Texas A&M University Commerce
  • Texas Tech University
  • University of Houston-Downtown
  • University of Houston-Clear Lake
  • University of Texas at Brownsville

Grad TX is part of the Generation TX movement to get all Texas students on the path to success in college and their careers. Initial funding of the project is provided to the coordinating board through a federal College Access Challenge Grant.
