The University of Louisiana Monroe is now accepting credits from Bossier Parish Community College students who have completed the two-year Associate of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant program. BPCC students can transfer their credits toward three Health Studies programs in the ULM College of Health Sciences, School of Allied Health. 


ULM President Ron Berry and BPCC Chancellor Rick Bateman Jr. signed a memorandum of understanding in June. 


The MOU addresses course and program transfer and articulation agreements for the Associate of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant at BPCC and three unique Bachelor of Science in Health Studies tracks at ULM.   


Specifically, learners will have the option of pursuing the Healthcare Management and Marketing, the Distant Learning Healthcare Management and Marketing, or the Pre-Professional tracks at ULM.   


The partnership also comes with scholarship opportunities for eligible students. Those coming from BPCC to ULM will be able to take advantage of the ULM Scholastic Transfer Award (up to $2,400 per year) and the Phi Theta Kappa Award (up to $2,400 total).
