Students wanting to pursue a Bachelor of Commerce degree will now be able to take their entire first year of classes at North West College.

Administrators at the post-secondary institution signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Saskatchewan, allowing the college to offer direct entry into the Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan starting in the fall of 2019.

North West College President and CEO Jay Notay said the agreement will give students more post-secondary study options closer to home. 

"Partnerships like these enable universities and colleges to provide students with the training they desire where it works for them," he said.

Students who enrol in their first year of commerce with the college will not only be eligible for scholarships through the university but also at the college. 

North West College serves over 2,600 students each year in northwestern Saskatchewan with campuses in Meadow Lake and the Battlefords.
