Bossier Parish Community College and the University of Louisiana Monroe have signed a memorandum of understanding.
BPCC Chancellor Dr. Jim Henderson and ULM President Dr. Nick Bruno signed the document Wednesday morning at BPCC's campus.
The move will enable students who obtain an associate degree of applied science in Occupational Therapy to continue their education at ULM and complete the program with a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies.
With the Occupational Therapy Assistant A.S. and the B.S. in Health Studies, students will also qualify for admissions into ULM's graduate program in Occupational Therapy.
