TEXAR President and CEO Kelly Mitchell said in a press release,

I could not be more excited to enter an arrangement with Texas A&M-Texarkana to benefit our employees and our community.

Partnership of business concept. Business network.

Partnerships like the one forged here today are an integral part of our university’s commitment to serving our local community by meeting the educational needs of students at every level.





With this new partnership, full-time employees of TEXAR will receive a 25% discount on tuition. This goes for undergraduate, graduate, certificate, or micro-credential programs delivered in-person, online, or through a hybrid format.
