Fred Gibbons, the president of Northern College in Timmins, is pleased with a deal the school has struck with Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie.  Gibbons says the agreement allows Northern students in a two or three-year program to transfer to a degree program at Algoma U.  Gibbons says what makes this a good deal is Algoma will recognize the Northern student`s credits.  The agreement covers six Bachelor programs including business administration, social works, science and computer science.  It takes effect this fall.
