HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - Quinnipiac University has reached a transfer agreement that will allow students at Norwalk Community College to more easily transfer to the private university.

Under the recently announced deal, students at the community college who receive an associates degree and have a grade point average of at least 3.0 or higher in some disciplines will be guaranteed admission into Quinnipiac as juniors.

The deal applies to students who earn an associate degree in arts or an associate of science in business, nursing, computer science, criminal justice, allied health or from the college of technology engineering science

The school also is making scholarships available to NCC students based on their grade point averages.

“We are committed to easing the financial burden on these students to enable their seamless transfer from Norwalk to Quinnipiac, positioning the students for career success,” said Quinnipiac president Jdy Olian.

Norwalk Community College students also will be eligible to take one class per year at Quinnipiac for free for three years.

Quinnipaic has similar agreements with Gateway and Housatonic community colleges.
