The University of New Orleans and Delgado Community College recently signed two separate agreements to increase the transfer rates and educational accomplishment rates between the two schools.

According to the agreements, there are now provisions for creating a partnership bridge program to help students attend Delgado until they are eligible to transfer into UNO’s programs.

“The process of reverse articulation, where the credits earned at UNO are transferred back to Delgado, is in line with national best practices for college completion,” UNO President John Nicklow said. “This is an arrangement that benefits both institutions. I am proud to continue our close collaboration with Chancellor [Joan] Davis and Delgado Community College, in the interest of serving the students of greater New Orleans.”

In addition, when students finish certain requirements at UNO, they can also gain an associate degree from Delgado.

“Opportunities for collaboration between the public higher education institutions in New Orleans manifest themselves in increased access and completion of college-level work by the people of our city and region,” Delgado Chancellor Joan Davis said. “The success of our students is the success of our schools and our community. We thank President Nicklow and his colleagues at UNO for working with us to renew and strengthen our agreement to serve students in a manner that increases the value of their higher education experience.”
