NSU, LDCC will sign agreements

NSU Signing
Northwestern State University and Louisiana Delta Community College have developed credit transfer agreements to benefit students pursuing careers in manufacturing and forensic science.

Administrators will formalize the agreements with a signing at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 30 in Conference Center B on the first floor of the Louisiana Purchase building on the LDCC campus.

One agreement will allow Certificate for Manufacturing (C4M) students who complete LDCC’s program to receive seven hours of credit towards NSU’s associate and/or bachelor’s degree in engineering technology.  C4M is an industry-based certification recognized by the secondary system as well as business and industry.

A second agreement will allow completers of the Associate of Applied Science in Forensic Science at LDCC to transfer credits towards NSU’s Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Forensic Science Concentration.

Administrators say the agreements support workforce development initiatives by saving students time and money while encouraging them to continue to seek advanced degrees.
