KC will offer two classes this fall at UT Tyler Longview University Center

Kilgore College and The University of Texas at Tyler are continuing their long history of partnership and cooperation by offering two classes this fall at the UT Tyler – Longview University Campus (LUC).

KC will offer Statistics (MATH 1342) and General Psychology (PSYC 2301) at the LUC to better serve the Longview population.

“It’s a deep thread in our mission as an institution to promote partnerships through outreach to area schools and universities,” said Dr. Brenda Kays, KC president. “It’s always exciting when two educational institutions can work together for the benefit of students.”

The math class is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; and the psychology class will be held at 10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

KC and UT Tyler have also created a plan for students that explicitly outlines the courses to take at each institution to earn an associate and bachelor’s degree in the most efficient and affordable way possible.

The plan is detailed on each institution’s website so students can easily locate the information.

“Our partnerships with our fellow institutions of higher education are a benefit not only to the students but also the communities in which they live and work. We are working together to enhance the East Texas region,” said Dr. Amir Mirmiran, UT Tyler provost and vice president for academic affairs.

With this roadmap, the schools hope to decrease confusion that often leads to students taking unnecessary classes.

The fall 2018 semester at KC begins Monday, Aug. 27.
