NICEVILLE, FL– On November 15, 2019, Northwest Florida State College hosted a ceremonial memorandum of understanding signing with Troy University to celebrate a new agreement for students transferring to Troy University. The agreement went into effect July 12, 2019 and allows for NWFSC students and employees to receive a 10% tuition scholarship and waived application fees when transferring to Troy University on top of the preexisting articulation agreement that ensures student success.
“We are thrilled to have Troy University as yet another outstanding partner institution,” said NWFSC President Dr. Devin Stephenson. “This partnership will not only benefit our students, but employees as well, and will continue to foster Northwest Florida State College’s already strong relationship with Troy.”
Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. summarized the value of the partnership by quoting famous Alabama author and political activist Helen Keller with “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
