Victoria College has partnered with the University of Houston-Victoria to offer 2+2 plans that provide a more affordable option for students seeking a bachelor’s degree.

“The 2+2 model allows students to spend their first two years at Victoria College, where they will benefit from the community college focus of helping all students succeed,” said Bobby Cubriel, VC’s director of Advising & Counseling Services. “After receiving their associate degree, students can transition to UHV for their remaining two years and earn the same degree as students who spend all four years at a university.”

The 2+2 plans guide students in the courses they need to take at VC and the courses they will need after they transfer to UHV.

“The VC/UHV 2+2 Plan is absolutely the most cost-effective way to earn your bachelor’s degree, and following the 2+2 model means there are no hours lost in transfer,” said Dr. Tom Butler, Victoria College president. “And, of course, you receive two degrees instead of just one – VC’s associate degree and UHV’s bachelor’s degree.”

Students who take advantage of the 2+2 plans will be able to save money by staying at home where they have the support of their family, room and board, and help with childcare, if necessary.

The 2+2 plans VC currently has in place with UHV are:

  • Bachelor of Science – Criminal Justice
  • Bachelor of Arts or Science – Psychology
  • Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences
    - Biology
    - Biotechnology
    - Communication
    - General Business
    - Leadership & Enterprise Studies
    - Legal Assistance & Administration
    - Marketing
    - Psychology
  • Bachelor of Business Administration  – Accounting
  • Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies – Grades 4–8
  • Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies – Early Childhood – Grade 6
  • Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies – Secondary

Since 2010, VC and UHV have had a seamless articulation agreement for students who transition from the Associate Degree in Nursing Program at VC to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program at UHV. VC officials say more 2+2 plans may be developed in the future.
