KINGSVILLE, Texas — Texas A&M University-Kingsville has announced a partnership with the Tuloso-Midway Independent School District to provide dual credit courses to juniors and seniors.
The program will bring students from Tuloso-Midway High School to the TAMUK campus by bus and provide a jump-start on college.
TMISD will pay for busing, tuition, and books for students who qualify for the program.
"We're changing lives here today. To have an opportunity for Tuloso-Midway ISD to partner with Texas A&M University-Kingsville, and to actually send students to assimilate with their regular traditional college students — game changer for us." TMISD Superintendent Steve Van Matre said,
The new dual credit program is set to start in the spring semester.
