Galveston College graduate finds new code to success

Last August, Galveston College student Jason Nichols, of Galveston, set a goal to earn a Level One Medical Coding Certificate. He realized this would mean registering for 15 rigorous credit hours each semester and that those classes were only offered in the evening. He worked as an Office Depot sales consultant during the day and then transformed into a Galveston College student as the sun began to set. He attended class two to three nights weekly for two semesters.
Some nights Nichols took two consecutive classes, beginning at 5:30 p.m., and remained in the class until the second class ended after 9 p.m. Not only did he successfully earn 15 credit hours each semester, he did it with excellence and was placed on the Vice President’s List two consecutive semesters with a 3.6 grade-point average.
As Nichols worked to complete requirements for the second semester, he set a second goal to prepare and take the American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC) certification exam. He took the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam and passed the challenging test in May 2019. With these two major accomplishments under his belt, he created a resume and applied for a medical coding position at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston.
Nichols was selected for the position and is currently employed as a revenue cycle coder at UTMB. His professor, Donna Swartz, said Nichols made himself a very strong candidate by earning the certificate and coupling it with passing the AAPC CPC exam.
Nichols is currently coding for community-based family medicine and general practice outpatient clinics and has found the work extremely interesting and rewarding. He was recently elected secretary of the Galveston chapter of the AAPC.

Dr. LaToya Mills, Priscilla Culver and Diego Turrubiartes provided tours of the campus. Sandi Smith and Trish Szymanski provided media support.

Galveston College Transfer Signing at UHD

Galveston College, UHD sign articulation agreement

The University of Houston-Downtown and Galveston College have pledged their support to students earning their associate degrees and ultimately Finishing UHD Strong.

Dr. W. Myles Shelton, Galveston College president, and Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz, UHD president, put their pens to paper on March 19 to sign an articulation agreement focused on student success. This pact commits both institutions to creating seamless pathways for Galveston College students seeking to transfer to UHD; providing resources such as degree maps and cooperative advising; offering joint admissions, and data sharing.

The signing was conducted at UHD. Arriving with Dr. Shelton was Dr. Cissy Mathews, vice president of instruction at Galveston College. In addition to President Muñoz, UHD representatives included Dr. Eric Carl Link, senior vice president for academic and student affairs and provost; Daniel Villanueva, assistant vice president for enrollment services and registrar; and Dr. Faiza Khoja, associate vice president for academic affairs.

“This signing is a first step. Both UHD and Galveston College will work together to support students and ensure they complete their degrees on time and without excess debt or credit hours,” Dr. Muñoz said.

“I look forward to working with UHD on this great partnership and helping our students succeed,” Dr. Shelton responded.

This agreement will support seamless transfers from Galveston College to UHD, as well as reverse transfers (transferring university credits back to a community college to earn associate degrees).

It also promotes data sharing between the institutions to provide students with information regarding transfer processes, financial aid, degree programs and degree completion.

And, to further ease the transition from an associate-degree program to bachelor’s track, both UHD and Galveston College will partner on joint admissions allowing students to co-enroll at both institutions. Likewise, students will benefit from cooperative advising in which students can receive specific guidance using degree maps to effectively direct them toward the right courses for selected degree programs.

The UHD-Galveston College partnership supports Houston Guided Pathways to Success (Houston GPS) initiative and fulfills the goals of the 60x30TX plan of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, whose overall goal is to have at least 60 percent of Texans ages 25-34 complete a technical certificate or degree by 2030.

Led by the University of Houston, Houston GPS includes Houston and Gulf Coast area institutions working together to create an integrated system of cohesive, interdependent strategies designed to increase and accelerate student completion and a smooth two-year to four-year college transfer process while improving educational quality for Houston-area students, ultimately saving students time and money.

Galveston College receives go-ahead to offer bachelor’s degrees

Galveston College received approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges Dec. 11 to expand its traditional community-college mission to include the awarding of bachelor’s degrees.

Approval to advance from a Level I associate degree-granting college to a Level II bachelor’s degree-granting institution was the final step in Galveston College’s yearlong journey to offer its first bachelor’s degree in 51 years of service to Galveston Island, the state of Texas and the Gulf Coast region – a Bachelor of Applied Science in Healthcare Management.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 2118 on June 12, 2017, which allowed the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to authorize certain public two-year colleges to offer baccalaureate degree programs in the fields of applied science, applied technology and nursing.

In November 2017, the Galveston Community College District Board of Regents took a historic vote to create the opportunity for Galveston College to pursue offering the bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Management, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

The college will launch the Bachelor of Applied Science in Healthcare Management in fall 2019. The nursing degree is still in the planning stages.

“The bachelor’s degrees we will offer are designed to complement our two-year degree and certificate programs that prepare students for the workforce and to transfer to four-year universities,” said Dr. Myles Shelton, president of Galveston College. “These are degrees when there is a local workforce need either for skills that need specific training and require a bachelor’s degree or for someone who has those skills and wants to advance into a management role.”

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Healthcare Management prepares graduates for entry- to mid-level management positions in planning, directing and coordinating medical and health services in hospitals, clinics, managed-care organizations, public health agencies or similar organizations.

“The state of Texas and the Galveston-Houston metro area are facing severe shortages of healthcare managers in a variety of areas,” said Dr. Cissy Matthews, vice president for instruction at Galveston College. “The new bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Management will offer students the opportunity to earn a four-year degree in an affordable, supportive environment that is close to home.”

Dr. Matthews said the college is excited to offer its first bachelor’s degree in support of the needs of the healthcare industry in the region.

“This is an outstanding opportunity to provide higher education for an industry that is critical to our island and region’s economic health,” Dr. Matthews said. “Local healthcare workers will now have access to a bachelor’s degree that brings with it opportunities for advancement and higher level skills development.”

Once students begin classes, the college will host an on-site visiting team from SACSCOC within six months of enrolling students. The purpose of this visiting team will be to review the Healthcare Management program and to make recommendations regarding the needs and priorities of the program.

Dr. Shelton said Galveston College will continue to add baccalaureate programs, while retaining the technical mission that is part of a community college’s job — that is, training workers for local industries.

“Our baccalaureate degrees are an affordable win-win for students, business and industry,” Shelton said. “I want to thank our local legislators, the governor, and our regents, faculty, staff and community as we begin this next chapter in the evolution of Galveston College.”

Students enrolled in online courses may be required to come to campus to take their final exam. Please refer to the course syllabus for the exact deadline on completing the final exam. Spaces are limited in the testing center so it is recommended that students take their final exams as early as possible during the exam period. Contact your instructor if you have questions.


All grades are due in the Office of Admissions via the Whitecaps Portal by 10 a.m. Instructors should enter grades into Whitecaps Portal for processing as soon as possible following completion of the exam. Students should check all examination dates with their instructors prior to the exam week. Examinations should be administered in the room where the class meets; however, off-campus classes will be announced by the instructor. Laboratory exams will be given on the last scheduled lab day of the semester.
