FLORENCE – The University of North Alabama and Heritage Christian University signed an articulation agreement last week that is designed to facilitate both transfer of credit and enrollment in graduate programs. Over the years, the universities have built a strong relationship through shared faculty and an agreement between Collier Library at UNA and Overton Memorial Library at HCU.

“This agreement builds on an existing relationship between two universities that serve our region,” said Dr. Kenneth Kitts, President of UNA. “More academic and career opportunities will be available to students through new pathways created with this agreement.”

Dr. W. Kirk Brothers, President of HCU agreed. “Every articulation makes both institutions stronger. We look forward to the mutual benefits and blessings. This agreement is a win for students,” he said.

“We thank Dr. Kitts, Dr. Ross Alexander, the UNA staff, and Dr. Michael Jackson and the HCU articulation team for the tireless work they put into this process,” Brothers added.

UNA is an accredited, comprehensive regional state university offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs through the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Human Sciences, and the Anderson College of Nursing and Health Professionals.

HCU has offered affordable and effective degrees in biblical studies since 1968, allowing graduates to thrive in their ministries without the burden of student loan debt. HCU is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education.
