Alvin Community College Partners with University of Houston

A partnership between Alvin Community College and the University of Houston-Clear Lake will offer classes for freshmen and sophomores including algebra, English composition, psychology and history at UH-CL’s Pearland campus.

ACC entered the partnership as it assesses how its strategic plan can be accomplished despite rejection of a proposed $48.5 million bond by voters in November. The cooperative venture will provide classrooms for approximately 70 freshman and sophomore students.
