Nicholls State University wants to increase its international profile, as well as its enrollment numbers.

So Wednesday, the university inked an agreement with global offshore giant Edison Chouest that will let Chouest employees and their families attend Nicholls.

Chouest has 14,000 employees in over a dozen countries.

Nicholls will waive the international and out-of-state fees for students connected to Chouest. There will also be online course opportunities.

The partnership is expected to pay big dividends for Lafourche Parish.
