Tulane University and Delgado Sign Student Transfer Agreement
January 31, 2019
The Tulane University School of Professional Advancement (SoPA) and Delgado Community College signed a transfer student agreement today, 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, January 31.
“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 Duitch. “We are happy to strengthen and re-affirm the relationship between Delgado and Tulane.”
“Carefully aligned programmatic transfer agreements supportive of easing the student transfer process are 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 Wainwright.
As a result of the agreement, Delgado graduates who complete an associate of arts degree in business, criminal justice, humanities or social sciences, or who complete an associate of science degree in physical sciences or biological sciences, may now transfer up to 60 credit hours toward the completion of a Tulane bachelor’s degree in applied computing, exercise science, general legal studies, digital design, public relations, health and 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.
