FLORENCE, AL - Officials with the University of North Alabama and Calhoun Community College have today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that will benefit all graduates from Calhoun seeking to complete their bachelor's degree at UNA.

"This MOU agreement between UNA and Calhoun is an excellent opportunity that will assist our graduates in furthering their education with a four-year degree," said Dr. Joe Burke, Interim President at Calhoun. "This is also an opportunity for our institutions to continue building upon the strong working relationship we've already established with UNA by serving our communities together through educational resources."

The agreement is similar to those that have been signed with other two-year institutions in Alabama and Tennessee. Further, the agreement provides pathways for Calhoun and UNA to explore additional educational opportunities for the benefit of students.
