SUSLA ENTERS INTO NEW ARTICULATION AGREEMENT WITH LSUS
Southern University at Shreveport and LSUS completed an alliance agreement during an 11 a.m. signing ceremony October 16 at LSUS. SUSLA’S Interim Chancellor S. Albert Gilliam and LSUS Chancellor Larry Clark were joined by officials from both schools and students from SUSLA’s allied health programs for the event.
The agreement establishes the articulation for students at SUSLA successfully completing the following programs: Respiratory Therapy Technology, Radiologic Technology, Surgical Technology, Health Information Technology, Dental Hygiene and Medical Laboratory Technician. SUSLA students who meet the criteria will be able to transfer to LSUS and matriculate in the Bachelor of Science in Community Health.
"At SUSLA, excellence in teaching and concern for our students are at the heart of our existence,” said Chancellor Gilliam. “This new collaboration between SUSLA and LSUS allows our students to further their educational attainment and to continue making sizeable impacts in our communities and society.”
As a part of the agreement, SUSLA agrees to inform their graduates about the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree from LSUS and to allow LSUS representatives to actively recruit students into the Community Health program when they complete their allied health degrees.
In addition, LSUS will work closely with SUSLA Allied Health program graduates to schedule courses at times enabling them to matriculate and maintain gainful employment, to accept 60 credit hours of coursework toward the Bachelor of Science in Community Health, and to develop processes that are in the best interest of the student.
