Southeastern Louisiana University and Nunez Community College in Chalmette have
reached an agreement facilitating the transfer of Nunez business administration students
into Southeastern’s business bachelor’s degree programs.
The agreement provides an easy transition for students graduating with an Associate of General Studies in business administration concentration from Nunez who intend to pursue any degree program offered through Southeastern’s College of Business.
The agreement – known as a 2+2 articulation agreement – is a cooperative endeavor between a two-year community college program that offers associate degrees and a four-year institution that provides students with an easy transition through the sharing of application and admissions information, transcripts and other records.
The agreement was signed by Southeastern President John L. Crain and Nunez Chancellor Thomas R. Warner.
“Our agreement with Nunez Community College opens the door for qualified students with two-year degrees the opportunity to further their education in a seamless manner,” Crain said. “Southeastern collaborates with institutions in the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) as we work cooperatively to advance the success of higher education students. Doing so addresses important workforce development needs for the state and is in the best interest of students.”
“Our partnership with Nunez provides more avenues for community college students to achieve their dreams of furthering their education. It also provides opportunities for students who may not have otherwise considered completing a bachelor’s degree,” said Antoinette Phillips, dean of the Southeastern College of Business.
She said students will take 60 credit hours at Nunez, which include most of their general education coursework, including math, English, science, social studies, humanities and basic business administration. Their remaining 60 hours at Southeastern will focus primarily on business coursework under one of the college’s departmental programs. Southeastern offers business degrees in the departments of accounting and finance, management and business administration, and marketing and supply chain management.
