CHALMETTE, La. (AP) - An agreement between the University of New Orleans and Nunez Community College in St. Bernard Parish will allow Nunez students to transfer course credits into programs in the UNO College of Business Administration.

The deal includes undergraduate programs at UNO in accounting, business administration, finance, hotel, restaurant and tourism administration, management and marketing.

Under the agreement, Nunez students can transfer up to 43 credit hours of general education courses and up to 18 credit hours of other required courses, depending on the selected UNO degree program.

“Agreements such as this improve educational access and attainment for students in the metropolitan area,” said UNO President Peter Fos said in a statement. “We are pleased to be collaborating with Nunez to achieve these important objectives.”

To transfer their credits, Nunez students must maintain a minimum 2.25 overall grade-point average and have earned at least 24 hours of transferrable credit as well as completed a college-level math and English course.
