CBS 7 - Students looking to continue their education in the Permian basin will now have a local option to get a Texas Tech education.
A new agreement will establish a Texas Tech site at Midland College's main campus in the Tall City.
President of Texas Tech University, Lawrence Schovanec said, this will make it easier for students to take courses at Texas Tech and when they are ready make the transfer process to the University much simpler.
"In a community like Midland, it is such an important economic center in this state. Access to higher education is very important. Not just here but also statewide. This allows us to really meet one of our highest priorities at Texas Tech,” said Schovanec.
