ETBU and Elysian Fields High School team-up to create “Yellow Jacket University”

East Texas Baptist University and Elysian Fields Independent School District announced the formation of “Yellow Jacket University” at a press conference held April 20, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at Elysian Fields ISD’s Administration Building. 

Starting in Fall 2017, ETBU will offer dual credit college courses to Elysian Fields High School students. The courses will be available on the University campus, in Elysian Fields High School classrooms, and online. 

The program provides an accessible opportunity for high school students to earn college credit. The courses will be offered for $100 per semester hour. Students will be allowed to take up to 27 semester hours before they graduate, about 25 percent of an undergraduate degree. The credit hours will be from ETBU, an accredited four-year university and transferable to any university in Texas.

After the success of Maverick University that began in Fall 2016 with Marshall ISD, ETBU continues to pursue new partnerships with area high schools.
