McNeese, Sowela tout enrollment, housing pact
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) -- Sowela Technical Community College and McNeese State University have signed agreements for cross-enrollment of students and the sharing of residential housing.
A McNeese news release Wednesday said the cross-enrollment agreement permits students from Sowela and McNeese to enroll in freshman or sophomore level courses at either institution under certain circumstances.
The residential housing agreement formalizes a nearly decade-long practice of providing on-campus residential housing at McNeese for Sowela students when space is available.
The cooperative agreements between the institutions make the transfer process easier while increasing housing options.
