Sul Ross State University offers $10,000 bachelor’s degree program
AUSTIN -- The Texas Public Policy Foundation applauds Sul Ross State University, Southwest Texas Junior College, and the Texas State University System for their announcement of another set of $10,000 bachelor’s degree programs.
The Texas State University System announced a partnership between Southwest Texas Junior College and Sul Ross State University’s Rio Grande College to create a “10K Scholars Program.” This three-year program would deliver a $10,000 bachelor’s degree in biology, chemistry, or mathematics for students who maintain at least a 3.0 grade-point average for their college coursework and complete at least 15 credit hours per semester.
“The advances in online learning and the broken cost structure of brick-and-mortar institutions will fundamentally remake higher education over the next several years,” said Dr. Thomas K. Lindsay, director of the Center for Higher Education at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “Universities that act now to shore up their value proposition -- quality education at an affordable cost -- will be better positioned to survive the upcoming shakeout.”
