Collin College’s Preston Ridge campus in Frisco is now a full off-site campus for Texas A&M University-Commerce students.

Texas A&M University-Commerce students attending the Preston Ridge campus can earn a bachelor's degree in business administration in general business, a bachelor's of business administration in business analytics, a Bachelor of Science in agribusiness and a bachelor's in social work.

The colleges celebrated the partnership at an Oct. 22 ribbon-cutting event.

These four-year degrees are in addition to Collin College’s first bachelor's degrees in nursing and applied technology in cybersecurity set to begin in the spring 2020 semester, which will enhance Collin County’s workforce, state Rep. Justin Holland, R-Rockwall, said at the event.

“It shows how innovative we are here in Collin County and what we will do both at the state and local levels to adjust to the needs of our communities,” he said at the event.

Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney said Collin College’s partnership with Texas A&M University-Commerce will continue to attract businesses and future residents to the city.

“Part of the reason Frisco was named the No. 1 place to live in the country is because of these higher education opportunities that exist here,” Cheney said at the event.

Additionally, the partnership and four-year degrees will add paths for the region’s high school students, Collin College district President Neil Matkin said.

“And the next step is introducing those four-year degrees, fully accredited and creating pipelines not only for Collin College, but for all the high schools in the region through this area, all centered right here in Frisco, Texas,” Matkin said during the event.
