|Northwestern to accept DCC course work|
Louisiana Delta Community College students who want to transfer to Northwestern State University will have an easier process following an agreement signed by the two schools.
Officials for both universities recently signed a memorandum of understanding that allows the two schools to work together to assist Delta students who want to transfer to Northwestern.
According to Delta chancellor Dr. Luke Robins, the agreement will improve the transfer and advising process for students, as well as develop an "expanded course articulation crosswalk and identify specific degree programs for which articulation agreements can be designed."
Of particular interest to Delta students are the eight bachelor's degree programs that Northwestern offers online, including criminal justice, journalism, general studies, business administration, psychology, unified public safety, radiology sciences and nursing, Robins said.
"The number of online programs at Northwestern is an advantage," Robins said. "Many of our students are bound by location and time. This makes it easier for them to continue their education."
"For us, it is about student success," Robins said. "This agreement provides a seamless pathway for students who want to transfer. They know what they need to take to transfer the maximum number of hours."
Delta and NSU reached agreements for the bachelor of arts in criminal justice and the bachelor of science and family and consumer science concentration in child development and family relations. Delta students wishing to major in either Northwestern program can follow a prescribed schedule in their first two years at Delta and transfer all credits to NSU, according to Robins.
"We are pleased to be able to develop this agreement with Delta Community College and look forward to working with them in the future," said NSU president Dr. Randall Webb. "We know Delta students will find a number of outstanding academic programs at Northwestern to meet their needs."
