Camden County College Joins Transfer Pathways Program
Blackwood, N.J. - The presidents of Stockton University and Camden County College today announced their support for a dual admission and transfer partnership agreement that will help students make a smooth transition from the two-year college to Stockton’s bachelor’s degree program.
The Transfer Pathways agreement builds a strong relationship between Stockton and Camden County College by offering multiple opportunities for students to affordably pursue associate and bachelor’s degrees at the two institutions of higher education.
Camden County College President Donald Borden said the agreement is a benefit to students both financially and academically.
“Camden County College has the lowest tuition in the Delaware Valley, and among the most expanded articulation agreements with schools such as Stockton University,” Borden said. “We offer our students a quality education at an affordable rate and make it easy for them to transfer to the school of their choice to meet their educational goals.”
Stockton President Harvey Kesselman said he is excited to provide Camden County College students a new opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree and take advantage of Stockton resources while at the community college.
"The number of students from Camden County who attend Stockton has been growing,” Kesselman said. “This agreement will help support students as they begin their degree at Camden County College, and also provides the assurance that they can have a smooth pathway to a bachelor’s degree at Stockton,” Kesselman said. “We look forward to participating in their success.”
The terms of the agreement include:
- Students who are denied direct admission to Stockton as a freshman applicant can receive conditional dual admission in partnership with Camden County College.
- Students will attend classes at CCC but will also have access to campus activities and student groups at Stockton using a special Stockton Identification Card from Stockton’s Transfer Pathways program. Students are also eligible to apply for housing on Stockton’s campus, space permitting.
- Students already enrolled at Camden County College can apply for conditional acceptance to Stockton while working towards their associate degree, and be assured of acceptance prior to the term in which they are ready to transfer.
- Students who successfully complete their associate degree at CCC can automatically transfer to Stockton with junior standing. Application fees to Stockton will be waived for eligible students.
- Students who complete at least 36 credits at Camden County College and a total of 64 credits between the county college and the four-year institution, are eligible to receive a retroactive associate degree from CCC. Stockton and CCC will co-host “reverse transfer” information sessions for students.
- Stockton and CCC will develop specific program-to-program articulation agreements for high-demand majors to facilitate the quality and ease of transfer.
- Students will receive joint advising from Stockton and CCC and a Stockton advisor will have office space and a regular schedule at CCC.
- Students will be eligible for financial aid from whichever institution they are attending. Stockton will provide five one-year scholarships of $2,000 per year to CCC graduates whose admission to Stockton is covered by the agreement.
- Stockton and CCC will establish an advisory committee to ensure best practices in recruitment, enrollment management, academic and student services, information technology, marketing and facilities use.
Stockton already has similar agreements with Atlantic Cape Community College, Brookdale Community College, Cumberland County College, Mercer County Community College, Ocean County College, Rowan College at Gloucester County and Salem Community College and is pursuing additional partnerships with other community colleges in the state.
