CCCCD Students May Apply At SMU


December 10, 2004 -- Students interested in becoming dually enrolled at Collin County Community College District (CCCCD) and Southern Methodist University (SMU) may pick up pre-admission applications on all Collin County Community College campuses. A maximum of 13 students will be accepted into CCCCD-SMU Dual Admissions Program for the spring semester. The deadline for all applications is Jan. 5, 2005. Students will be notified of acceptance into the program no later than Jan. 25.

Applications and information sheets are available online at . Follow the link for "University Partnerships - Dual Admissions."

According to the agreement with SMU, CCCCD students are encouraged to apply as early as possible during their first two years of college, and then--provided they meet certain academic standards, follow SMU's curriculum guidelines, and comply with all SMU admission requirements--they may transfer to SMU after their first or second year of study. Each student may transfer a maximum of 62 credit-hours to SMU

Students who are accepted into the program enjoy an early taste of academic life at SMU. As dual enrollees, they receive tickets to SMU sporting events, special lectures and performing arts events; they receive a DART pass, an SMU e-mail address and a newsletter; they have access to SMU libraries; upon acceptance, they receive SMU videos, t-shirts, organizers and handbooks. All of this while enjoying the proximity and convenience of studying at CCCCD.
