PINEVILLE, La. (KALB) - Louisiana College and CLTCC have banded together to help make four-year degrees more affordable for students across the state.
Monday they signed an agreement to help CLTCC students transfer general education credits over to LC with ease.
They called it a win-win for students and their families, who may not be able to afford a four-year degree at the start of their college career.
Now, students can get their general education requirements done during their first two years at CLTCC, for less money. Then they can transfer to LC and graduate with a four-year degree.
The deal works for students at any of CLTCC's eight campuses. Both institutions said it provides more options for their future
"I think that is what is wonderful about Central Louisiana, the people I have met here," said LC President Dr. Rick Brewer. "We are all pulling together to make it a better place, to create educational opportunities which are an economic impact for the community. It can only help us get stronger."
The agreement begins the partnership immediately.
