SÜDFLORIDA – OIC of South Florida (OIC-SFL) and Broward College (BC) have announced a new partnership that strengthens the path to university and careers of under-cared for and under-represented youth and adults. Our common goal is to expand the Community`s career opportunities and strengthen the workforce in South Florida. With this new strategic partnership, students enrolled in the various youth and workforce training programs at the OIC-SFL have the opportunity to earn up to 11 university credits to earn an associate or bachelor`s degree at Broward College. The articulation points appear as “CR” on student scripts. Grades are not assigned for the joint. Credits earned by Articulation meet the graduation requirements, but cannot be accepted as transfer credits at another institution. Students who are considering moving to other institutions should contact the university or university to check if articulation credits is accepted. South Florida OIC President and CEO Newton B. Sanon and Broward College President J. David Armstrong, Jr., officially announced a joint agreement between the two companies. This historic day represented “Innovation at its best,” said Dr.
