TCC and University of West Florida announce new partnership

Tallahassee Community College and the University of West Florida announced a new partnership today as the two institutions established the TCC2UWF program.


This program will provide students the opportunity to complete an Associate of Arts degree at TCC and transfer to UWF to complete a bachelor’s degree.


TCC President Jim Murdaugh and UWF President Judy Bense introduced the program today at a signing ceremony. TCC and UWF will share joint coordination of the program, which includes outreach to high school students and other members of the community in an effort to encourage them to pursue an associate’s degree through TCC while providing tailored, intensive advising that will place students on a path toward a bachelor’s degree from UWF.


“We are delighted to sign this partnership today with Tallahassee Community College,” said Bense. “It provides an excellent opportunity for students in this region to complete their bachelor’s degree at a mid-size regional comprehensive university in Northwest Florida. At UWF, we can focus on providing both a high-touch and quality education with personalized attention, small class sizes, and a unique student experience.”


The TCC2UWF program is part of TCC’s Golden Guarantee Program, which includes various university partners.


“We are excited to be able to offer students another opportunity to create a relationship with a great four-year institution that will help them plan for and attain success,” said Murdaugh.


Students enrolled at TCC will be offered admission to UWF early in their academic career in order to receive personalized and attentive transition services for a seamless transfer.
