Welcome to the Texas A&M Blinn TEAM Website

The Texas A&M-Blinn TEAM (“Transfer Enrollment at A&M”) Program is a collaborative, co-enrollment partnership between a major university (Texas A&M) and a community college (Blinn College). Each year since 2001 this pioneering initiative has allowed the admission of hundreds of additional qualified students into the Texas A&M freshman class that would have otherwise not been possible due to enrollment limitations.

Participating students are initially admitted to Texas A&M University on a part-time basis, and may earn full admission by several methods. TEAM students are enrolled in one academic course at Texas A&M each semester, and the remainder of their courses at the Bryan Campus of Blinn College. Students who complete 45 Blinn credit hours and 15 A&M credit hours within a two-year period, while maintaining a 3.0 grade point average at each school, are automatically admitted to Texas A&M. TEAM students who wish to transition to A&M sooner may compete for transfer admission when they meet transfer eligibility. Finally, students who do not transition by the aforementioned methods do not immediately matriculate, but may become eligible for future admission as returning former students via the university’s readmission process (subject to current readmission criteria).

TEAM students benefit from enrollment at both institutions; students enjoy the university experience afforded by Texas A&M (such as residence hall life, sports events, and a huge range of student activities), while enjoying the smaller classroom environments and costs of Blinn College. Academic advisors, faculty, and staff at both schools facilitate TEAM student successes. TEAM was the first program in Texas to connect a junior and senior institution in exactly this way.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board complimented the TEAM Program in 2013 by bestowing “Recognition of Excellence.” In 2014 TEAM received the Board’s coveted “Star Award” as one of the top educational initiatives in Texas.
