Louisiana’s Baton Rouge Community College has signed an agreement with Southern University to provide students in the state’s capital a smooth transfer into Southern’s College of Sciences and Engineering.
Under the agreement, Southern University will admit Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) students, who have received a two-year degree in Computer Science.
“This program will allow a greater number of students to obtain their bachelor’s degrees here in Baton Rouge,” said Ray L. Belton, who is both system president of Southern University and flagship chancellor of Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The agreement was signed by Larissa Littleton-Steib, chancellor of Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC), James Ammons, executive vice chancellor, Southern University, Toni Manogin, vice-chancellor for academic and student affairs, BRCC, Patrick Carriere, dean of the College of Sciences and Engineering, Southern University, and Laura Younger, dean of STEM Division, BRCC.
“We are excited to build upon our current partnership with Southern University to continuously enrich our students’ transfer and workforce opportunities,” said Littleton-Steib.
“This agreement will not only allow a seamless transfer for students pursuing bachelor degrees in STEM-related fields, but it will also encourage future students to consider the endless opportunities available to them by starting their college careers at Baton Rouge Community College. We are grateful to Southern University System for this partnership.”
