Grambling State University Enters Partnership With Northshore Technical Community College

Grambling State University and Northshore Technical Community College in Lacombe, Louisiana, are establishing a transferable pathway for community college students to become eligible for direct admission into Grambling.

This pathway provides community college students with a transparent and systematic outline for successfully completing a baccalaureate degree from Grambling State University in accounting, computer information systems, management, or marketing. The institutions are partnering to facilitate student access through a seamless and concurrent blend of curricula. Under the agreement, NTCC students who have completed the newly-established Business Pathway will be admitted to Grambling State as sophomores.

Established in 1930, Northshore Technical Community College serves the parishes of the Greater Northshore Region, including St. Tammany, Washington, Tangipahoa, St. Helena, and Livingston. It enrolls nearly 4,700 students according to the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 29 percent of the student body.

Rick Gallot, president of Grambling State University, stated that “I often say that you can start at Grambling and go anywhere. Well, we’ll say the same thing for Northshore Technical Community College. Start there, go through Grambling, and you can go anywhere.”
