New agreements between Northwestern State University and Louisiana State University Eunice will allow students pursuing degrees in criminal justice and unified public safety administration to apply credits earned at LSUE to bachelor’s degree programs at Northwestern State. The memorandums of understanding were formalized Thursday by administrators, who said that both traditional and non-traditional students expressed a need for opportunities in which associate degree credits could transfer easily into a baccalaureate program.
