Forney ISD Announces Partnership with Eastfield College and Texas Tech: 4 year Degrees Offered Online and Onsite
On Monday night October 7th, the Forney ISD School Board announced a new partnership with Eastfield College and Texas Tech University, providing a streamlined approach that takes students from high school to community college and ending at a Tier 1 University all in Forney.
“Forney ISD students will have the opportunity to complete their core curriculum or associates degree through Eastfield College and then transfer to Texas Tech University to complete a bachelor’s degree right here in Forney, Texas,” Forney ISD Superintendent Dr. Justin Terry said. “This is a great opportunity, not only for our students, but for our community. For the first time, we are bringing associates, bachelors, and eventually graduate degree programs to our students and, now, our community. Beginning this spring, our community can register for online courses, and will soon be able to take classes on our campuses.”
Texas Tech University currently offers online courses for the Spring 2020 semester that Forney residents can take advantage of to earn a bachelor’s degree online and master’s and hybrid doctoral degrees for those interested in pursuing a graduate degree.
“With a college and career center in the November 5 bond package, we plan to expand post-secondary learning opportunities right here in Forney for our students and community through our partnership with Eastfield and Texas Tech University,” Forney ISD Board President Greg Pharris said.
