The approach will "streamline and improve" students experience as they transition to post-secondary education, Monday's release said.

"The college recognizes the importance of promoting pathway opportunities within our educational institutions. This agreement will make it easier for students to access post-secondary and plan their futures," said Jay Notay, CNC's vice president academic, in a statement.

School District 57 will cover tuition and course costs while the faculty association will pay for student fees. CNC covers the development fee.

The courses, set to be offered starting the 2016-17 year, include accounting, biology, economics, English, history, math, marketing, psychology and more.

The agreement ends June 2020 and is reviewed on an annual basis.
