From Dual Credit to Full Scholarship

La reVistaAbout: NVC Dual Credit program

Ms. Boerm,

Thank you for all your support in the dual credit program. I wanted to let you know that Austin’s participation in the dual credit program was instrumental in him being awarded the UTSA Top Scholar Award.

The UTSA Top Scholar is awarded full tuition and fees, room and board with a fully paid study abroad program. This program consider the applicant’s SAT score, leadership, and community service. Dr. Ong, UTSA associate dean of Administration and Biomedical Engineering professor, specifically requested Austin as he felt Austin was prepared for the academic rigor of the BME program.

Having taken Calculus l and II, as well as Chemistry I and University Physics I as a dual credit student at NVC, Austin has shown his ability to be in the Biomedical Engineering program at UTSA. Thank you for providing the opportunity to Austin as he is very excited to be a UTSA Top Scholar!
