POCAHONTAS, AR Feb. 14 — On February 11, Black River Technical College president Dr. Martin Eggensperger signed an agreement with Arkansas Tech University (ATU) president Dr. Robin Bowen to offer select ATU bachelor’s degrees to BRTC students without students having to ever leave Pocahontas or Paragould.
ATU is the second university to sign to be a part of the BRTC University Center. The BRTC University Center will provide advisement and enrollment advice to students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree. Bachelor’s degrees to be offered by ATU at BRTC will be announced at a later date.
Students must complete degree requirements with at least a 2.00 cumulative grade point average in general education courses and at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average in upper cases.
More information about the BRTC University Center will be provided at a later date.
