South Louisiana Community College (SLCC) and University of Holy Cross (UHC) are pleased to announce a new 2+2 agreement that will allow SLCC students to easily transfer to UHC to complete their bachelor's degree.
The new agreement was signed May 16, 2023, on SLCC’s Lafayette Campus, and encompasses Business Administration at UHC which offers online business management and accounting undergraduate degrees. Under the plan, students complete 60 credit hours during a two-year tenure at SLCC and earn an associate degree. Those credits then transfer to UHC, where the student accrues the hours remaining to earn a bachelor’s degree.
"We are thrilled to offer our students this new pathway to a bachelor's degree through our partnership with University of Holy Cross," said Dr. Crystal Lee, VC for Academic and Student Affairs. "This agreement will provide a clear roadmap for our students to achieve their academic goals and further their careers."
“Thanks to the 2+2 articulation agreement between UHC and SLCC, our flagship set of undergraduate accelerated online programs in Business Administration and Accounting will be available to SLCC graduates with a seamless credit transfer process. We all know that traditional college degrees can mean significant costs and time commitments for people who are juggling their current job and family responsibilities at home. By enrolling in our "Fast-Track" programs, business graduates of SLCC will have the opportunity to complete their undergraduate degree in about half time of regular college course work," said Dr. Armine Shahoyan, Department of Business Administration at University of Holy Cross.
The new 2+2 agreement between SLCC and UHC is a win-win for both institutions, students and community. A similar agreement between SLCC and McNeese University will also go into effect this fall enabling more avenues for students to further their education. Students interested in participating in the 2+2 program should contact the admissions office at either institution for more information.
