Articulation Agreement With Nicholls
NOCCA Students To Receive Credit In Their Academic & Arts Studies
An articulation agreement between Nicholls State University and the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) will enable NOCCA graduates who meet requirements to matriculate to Nicholls State with up to 30 credit hours, close to a complete year of college studies.
Signed on July 8 by Nicholls State University President Dr. Jay Clune, the memorandum of understanding between Nichols State and NOCCA, NOCCA graduating seniors, under certain circumstances of final grade and level, receive college credit for several different NOCCA arts courses including their studies in Culinary Arts, performing arts (Classical Music, Classical Vocal Music, Jazz Instrumental Music) and Visual Arts. Graduates of NOCCA’s Academic Studio can also receive credit for their humanities courses in college English and World History.
Nicholls State University President Dr. Jay Clune shared, ““I am excited to complete this partnership with NOCCA because it creates a pipeline of students to Nicholls from a school that has meaningfully contributed to New Orleans’ unique culture.”
“This articulation agreement with Nicholls State University provides an incredible opportunity to our students,” further stated NOCCA President | CEO Kyle Wedberg. “For years our NOCCA Culinary Arts Department has been a post-secondary partner working to further develop and nurture our students with the John Folse Institute at Nicholls State. Now these students will receive articulation credits at this national caliber Hospitality & Culinary training center right here in Louisiana. This articulation agreement will also benefit our music students in classical instrumental, jazz and vocal; and visual arts students as well will receive college credits for work done at NOCCA. Thank you Nicholls for investing in the next generation of the creative and cultural economy through NOCCA students in Culinary Arts, Music and Visual Arts and providing a pathway to their college education and future success.”
This articulation agreement recognizes the advanced arts training that NOCCA, as Louisiana’s high school arts conservatory, provides to students in the state with advanced placement to one of the highest level post-secondary institutions.
The agreement will apply to students entering Nicholls this Fall.
