WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Students who wish to transfer to Wilmington College in Wilmington, Delaware, after they complete their associate degree at Mercer County Community College now have the opportunity to enter a dual admissions program.

A new agreement, signed in July, enables students majoring in 17 different programs to enter their junior year at Wilmington after completing their degree at Mercer. Among the subject areas included in the agreement are criminal justice, business, liberal arts, computer science, education and nursing. Students must maintain a 2.0 average. While attending Mercer these dual admissions students will also have access to all of Wilmington's facilities.

MCCC holds dual admissions agreements with seven other colleges, including Montclair State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Penn State Abington, Rider University, Rutgers University, Saint Peter's College and The College of New Jersey. Most other colleges accept Mercer's credits and many have signed transfer agreements to ease the transition for students.
