NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — An agreement has been signed between a New Orleans university and a community college initiating the start of an official academic partnership.

As of March 22, Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) chancellor Dr. James H. Ammons and Delgado Community College chancellor Dr. Larissa Littleton Steib signed the agreement now granting Delgado graduates who received an associate’s degree in Arts, Applied Science, General Studies, or Science guaranteed admission into the university under the classification of a junior.

“This partnership is significant for our University, as we have committed to providing a seamless transition for students looking to further their education and access a 4-year degree. We look forward to welcoming Delgado graduates on our campus and supporting them through their academic and personal endeavors,”

Dr. James H. Ammons, Jr, SUNO Executive Vice President- Chancellor.

SUNO will provide the following for the eligible Delgado graduates:

  • Priority housing
  • Out-of-state tuition waivers
  • Transfer scholarships

 “This agreement is great news for our students. It enhances Delgado students’ ability to make steady, consistent, timely and efficient progress toward a bachelor’s degree. Advancing from Delgado’s associate degree programs to SUNO’s baccalaureate programs will give these students the best possible education to succeed in a broad range of career paths that include some of the region’s largest economic drivers.”
