Viking Islander Program (with Del Mar College)

The Viking Islander Program (VIP) is a collaborative, co-enrollment partnership between Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and Del Mar College.  The VIP program provides a guarantee of full admission to TAMU-CC for students successfully completing the program requirements.  In addition, the program will allow students to use appropriate TAMU-CC course credits toward the completion of an Associate Degree at Del Mar College.

Participating students enroll in no more than 7 semester credit hours at TAMU-CC and the remainder of their 15 semester credit hours, during the fall and spring semesters, at Del Mar College. Students who complete two or more semesters in the VIP program and maintain a 2.0 GPA at both institutions may apply to a degree-granting major at TAMU-CC.

VIP students benefit from enrollment at both institutions; students enjoy the university experience afforded by A&M-Corpus Christi (such as residence hall life, sports events, and a huge range of student services and activities), while enjoying the smaller classroom environments and costs of Del Mar College. Academic advisors, faculty, and staff at both institutions facilitate VIP student successes.
