San Jac makes articulation agreement with SFASU
New agreement opens doors for honors students

PASADENA, Texas – San Jacinto College and Stephen F. Austin State University (SFASU) recently approved an articulation agreement for Honors students.

The purpose of this agreement is to ensure that San Jacinto College and Stephen F. Austin State University work together to further opportunities and access to Honors education for qualified students. San Jac Honors students will be able to transfer Honors courses to Stephen F. Austin State, and San Jac students who enter Stephen F. Austin State University’s School of Honors will be eligible for transfer student scholarships.

“Articulation agreements are a way of publically recognizing partnerships between community colleges and universities,” said Dr. Catherine O’Brien, San Jacinto College associate vice chancellor for learning and assessment. “More students begin their educations at community colleges than at universities. It is important that we make that transition from one institution to the next as seamless as possible.”

The articulation agreement between the two institutions was approved by the San Jacinto College Board of Trustees on July 10 at the monthly Board meeting, and was signed by San Jacinto College Chancellor Dr. Brenda Hellyer on July 11.

Stephen F. Austin State University is one of the top 10 institutions where San Jacinto College graduates transfer.
