Dr. Evelyn Jorgenson, president of NorthWest Arkansas Community College, and Dr. Alan Marble, president of Missouri Southern University in Joplin, recently signed an agreement that will facilitate transfer students taking honors courses at the respective colleges.

The agreement allows students from NWACC to enroll in challenging courses that will count toward their degree requirements and make a seamless transition into Missouri Southern’s program, the institutions’ leaders said. The transfer agreement is effective with the fall 2015 semester.

A variety of courses are offered through NWACC’s Honors Program in English composition, literature, history, biology, astronomy, geology, philosophy, psychology and gender studies.
