FLORENCE – Officials with the University of North Alabama and Drake State Community and Technical College signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Dec.13 that will benefit all Drake State graduates seeking to complete their bachelor’s at UNA.

“We are so excited for this new partnership with UNA as it will afford our students another option on their path to success,” Patricia Sims, president of Drake State Community and Technical College, said. “Our two institutions will work together to ensure the transition from a two-year college to a four-year university is smooth for Drake State graduates.”

The agreement is similar to others that have been signed with two-year institutions in Alabama and Tennessee. Further, it provides pathways for Drake State and UNA to explore additional educational opportunities for the benefit of students. The agreement is effective immediately, and Drake State students may begin taking advantage of the agreement for the spring ’22 semester in both online and on-campus courses.

“UNA is pleased to partner with Drake State Community and Technical College on this mutually beneficial and worthy learning agreement,” Ross Alexander, UNA provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, said. “Both institutions are key players in serving the workforce development needs of the state and region.”
