Northwestern State University and Louisiana State University – Eunice formalized two agreements to facilitate the transfer of credits for student pursuing degrees in criminal justice and unified public safety administration.
One memorandum of understanding provides that students who complete the associate of science degree in criminal justice at LSU-E can transfer all credit hours to NSU for partial fulfillment of a bachelor of arts degree in criminal justice.
The agreement will help both traditional and non-traditional students seeking an opportunity to transfer to a four-year program that will accept LSU-E’s criminal justice credits.
The second MOU will allow students who complete LSU-E’s associate degree of applied science in fire and emergency services with a concentration in emergency services technology to transfer credit hours to apply to a bachelor of science degree in unified public safety administration at NSU.
Administrators say the partnership will benefit both traditional and non-traditional students who wish to continue on towards a baccalaureate degree program, increasing their skills and marketability.
