Officials from the University of North Texas and Grayson College signed two agreements Feb. 11 allowing students to smoothly transition to four-year degree programs at UNT.
The agreements formalize longstanding partnerships between UNT and Grayson College, which is one of UNT’s top feeder community colleges.
UNT President V. Lane Rawlins called the partnership a “great win for students,” allowing them to find new points of entry to UNT. “Hopefully, there will be hundreds, if not thousands, who pursue this path,” he said.

The admission partnership agreement allows students to complete their first two years at Grayson College while pursuing a four-year degree from UNT. Grayson College students who transfer with an associate’s degree receive automatic admission to UNT.
Through the Eagle Bound Program, Grayson College students also have access to UNT events and resources, including the Libraries. UNT personnel visit the Grayson College campus on a regular basis to provide advising and counseling about UNT majors, admission and financial assistance.
Officials also signed a bachelor of applied arts and sciences articulation agreement between Grayson College’s Workforce Division and UNT’s College of Public Affairs and Community Service. Students working on an associate’s degree in applied arts and sciences at Grayson College have a clear pathway to completion of the four-year bachelor of applied arts and sciences degree at UNT. The agreement provides students with easy access to online, evening and weekend courses and real-world work experiences. It also allows applied credits to transfer and be utilized toward a degree program.
