Northwestern State develops agreement with community college
BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — Some students at Bossier Parish Community College will soon be able to turn their associate degrees into a bachelor's degree through Northwestern State University.
The Times (http://bit.ly/1XbWz9n ) reports that the leaders of both schools will sign an agreement Monday that enables students to transfer college credit to the university after obtaining their associate degrees at the community college. The agreements were created for business administration programs, engineering technology and computer information systems.
BPCC Chancellor Rick Bateman Jr. says the agreement will help to ensure that students can earn a four-year degree without having to unnecessarily take duplicate classes.
Northwestern State President Jim Henderson said in a news release that the faculty at both schools worked together so that students will be prepared for the university's baccalaureate programs.
