Sul Ross State University and Midland College have created a unique way for students to earn a bachelor’s degree. The Sul Ross @ MC Program offers  students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree with majors in Biology, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Education, English, Geology, History, Homeland Security, Mathematics, Nursing (RN to BSN), and Spanish. In addition, some master’s programs have been added.

Midland College Distance Education (DE) students in the Sul Ross @ MC Program learn remotely on the MC campus via interactive TV, virtual classrooms, or through web-based courses. Participants may transfer over 80 credit hours of coursework from MC to SRSU and are eligible for financial aid and scholarships. Students using the Legacy scholarship still qualify for this type of aid.

“The Tall City” rises out of the west Texas horizon, its skyscrapers overlooking the Permian Basin, the largest oil production region in the U.S. Midland’s approximately 146,000 residents enjoy a variety of arts and culture venues, the George W. Bush Childhood Home, and Midland College, a thriving community resource for those seeking higher education.

In recent years, Midland has been named the second best place to live in Texas (Movoto Real Estate) and the second-fastest growing city with the highest income per capita in the United States (MSN Money). Long term Midlanders will tell you that the city holds a unique combination of big-city culture and home-town charm.

Midland College’s beginnings as part of the Permian Junior College District in 1969 allowed it to grow and gain its independence as a separate community college district in October 1972, with the city’s support. The new campus opened for classes in January 1975 and has been expanding the opportunities of its students ever since.
