John Alonso, Director of Enrollment at NGS, said “We are excited about this agreement and what it will mean for the graduates of CCRI. As an institution that specializes in serving non-traditional adult students, this agreement will provide more CCRI graduates that wish to enter the workforce and still earn a bachelor degree that option.”
