NEW ORLEANS – The University of Holy Cross (formerly Our Lady of Holy Cross College) has formed a partnership with Delgado Community College. Through a new Articulation Agreement between the institutions, Delgado students with an associate degree in Business Administration will be admitted as juniors in the Business Administration Department of UHC provided they meet admission requirements. In addition, Delgado students with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Accounting will be admitted as juniors in the Business Administration Department of UHC.
Students can transfer up to 60 semester hours for degree credit from Delgado to UHC. This is a 2+2 program in which Delgado students will earn a bachelor’s degree from UHC after successfully completing at least 60 additional semester hours in their respective program at UHC and meeting all UHC degree requirements.
The renewable agreement will be for a period of three years.
The signing of the Articulation Agreement between UHC and Delgado will take place on Thursday, June 9, 2016, at Delgado Community College, 615 City Park Ave., at 10:00 a.m.
Dr. David “Buck” Landry, President of the University of Holy Cross, and Joan Y. Davis, Chancellor of Delgado Community College, will be in attendance.
