College of the Mainland and Sam Houston State University Sign Articulation Agreement
Press Release
Monday, October 01, 2018

(Texas City)—  College of the Mainland and Sam Houston State University have entered into an articulation agreement where students can attend both schools simultaneously or alternately starting this fall. 
Under the agreement signed by COM President Dr. Warren Nichols and Richard Eglsaer, provost and vice president of academic affairs at Sam Houston State University, students can take part in “joint admission” to both schools. 
Over a seven-year period, students would be able to earn a high school diploma through Collegiate High School as well as an associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees by attending both schools under the agreed upon program. 
The joint admission lets students obtain a SHSU ID card, computer/internet account, library access, access to sporting events, free electronic transfer transcript evaluation, reduced application fee and access to their transcript online. 
The agreement between the two schools calls for course work completed for an associate degree to be applicable toward a baccalaureate degree in more than 50 undergraduate majors at SHSU in Huntsville as well as “reverse transfer” which allows students to transfer course work between the two schools. 
Students who are accepted under the joint admission must continually meet all admission requirements for both institutions in order to retain their eligibility to participate in the program.
Students in the program will be able to simply transfer, alternate enrollment between the two schools or co-enroll at their discretion. Cooperative advising will allow college counselors the ability to access transfer transcripts in order to advise students about transfer programs. 
Both schools are working toward creating an extensive articulation agreement in a broad range of majors. The schools also will strive to make financial aid transfer between the respective institutions as convenient as possible for the student.

Students transferring to SHSU will be encouraged to complete an associate degree at COM while SHSU will assist students in recognizing courses appropriate for transfer credit. 
COM and SHSU agreement is for a period of five years. Both schools will review the agreement annually to determine the desirability of terminating or expanding the agreement.
