NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Loyola University of New Orleans has a new transfer agreement with a local college and is working on similar agreements with colleges in Illinois, Texas and Florida.
University spokesman James Shields says the agreement signed Thursday with Delgado Community College is comprehensive, while an earlier one covered criminal justice and some other evening courses given at Delgado.
He says officials are in talks with the College of DuPage, outside Chicago; Houston Community College in Texas; and, in Florida, Miami Dade College, Pensacola State College and Florida State College at Jacksonville.
The Jesuit university in New Orleans has about 4,500 students. Full-time undergraduate tuition is about $35,500 a year.
Shields says that from spring 2012 through this fall, about 60 Delgado students have transferred to Loyola under the older program.
