NEW ORLEANS - Tulane’s School of Professional Advancement (SoPA) and Delgado Community College signed a transfer student agreement on Friday, Feb. 1, creating a pathway for Delgado graduates to complete bachelor’s degrees at Tulane University.
Tulane Provost Robin Forman and SoPA Dean Suri Duitch joined Delgado Interim Chancellor William Wainwright, Interim Provost Mostofa Sarwar, and Dean of Allied Health Harold Gaspard in an articulation agreement signing ceremony at Tulane’s Bea Field Alumni House on Thursday morning.
“The agreement paves the way for Delgado graduates to earn four-year degrees in nine high-demand fields, including digital design and applied computing,” said Suri Duitch. “We are happy to strengthen and re-affirm the relationship between Delgado and Tulane.”
As a result of the agreement, Delgado graduates who complete associate of arts degrees in business, criminal justice, humanities, social sciences or associate of sciences degrees in physical sciences or biological sciences may now transfer up to 60 credit hours toward the completion of a degree through the School of Professional Advancement in applied computing, exercise science, general legal studies, digital design, public relations, health & wellness, homeland security studies, humanities, or social sciences. Students who complete Delgado degrees in fields other than those specified in the agreement will have their coursework individually evaluated for transferability.
“Carefully aligned programmatic transfer agreements supportive of easing the student transfer process is a cornerstone for student success. Transfer opportunities for Delgado Community College graduates in high demand fields of study strengthen graduation outcomes and ensure robust career opportunities for our graduates,” said William S. Wainwright, Delgado’s Interim Chancellor.
