LUBBOCK, Texas -

Texas Tech and New Mexico Junior College approve an animal sciences agreement. It will make transfers easier and eventually feed students from the New Mexico program into Tech's vet school.

"There's a common sort of culture, of that school and Eastern New Mexico, and the values at Texas Tech. And in visiting with the president and the provost, who were here, I was very pleased to hear them say that Texas Tech had reached out to strike up that relationship more than they had experienced from institutions in that state," Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec said.

Students from New Mexico Junior College are also eligible for in-state tuition since it is located in a border county. 

Schovanec expects the program to start as early as next semester.
