of a 2+2 articulation agreement in business administration on UNO’s Lakefront campus.

Leaders from the University of New Orleans and Delgado Community College announced the three-year renewal of a 2+2 articulation agreement, which allows Delgado students who have completed an associate degree in business administration to easily transfer their credits to UNO in order to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree from UNO's College of Business Administration.

Officials from both institutions, including UNO President Peter J. Fos and Delgado Chancellor Joan Y. Davis, participated in a signing ceremony today on UNO's Lakefront campus.

"We are pleased to continue this program with our partners at Delgado," Fos said. "Articulation agreements are important in increasing educational access and attainment, and improving career prospects for students in the greater New Orleans area."

"Delgado is excited about this opportunity to extend improved pathways for transfer for our students to earn a bachelor's degree in business at the University of New Orleans," Davis said. "We look forward to the positive impact of this agreement in furthering the educational goals of our students and in advancing the economy of our community."

Delgado students with an associate degree in business administration will be admitted as juniors in UNO's College of Business Administration, provided they meet UNO's admissions requirements. Students can transfer up to 60 credit hours from Delgado toward the 120 hours needed for a bachelor's degree at UNO.
