Bossier Parish Community College Chancellor Jim Henderson and University of Louisiana at Monroe President Nick Bruno have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding that expands on their existing 2010 agreement.  

That original agreement enabled BPCC students to earn a two-year Associate of Science in Health Care Management and then transfer to ULM's two-year online Healthcare Management and Marketing program.  By doing so, they could earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Care Management and Marketing.

The new agreement expands their collaboration to include the Occupational Therapy Assistant program.  BPCC students who earn an Associate Degree of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant could transfer to ULM and complete the program with a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies.  That would then qualify them for admission into ULM's graduate program in Occupational Therapy.
