Open House for Parents and College-Bound High Schoolers October 20 at MCCC
Parents and college-bound high school students are invited to learn about the transfer programs that lead to a bachelor’s degree when Mercer County Community College (MCCC) hosts an Open House at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20. In addition to MCCC’s academic and transfer counselors, experts from many of New Jersey’s four-year colleges will present information.
According to Dr. Carol Tosh, MCCC’s dean for Enrollment Services, the college’s Dual Admissions Agreements provide students with the opportunity to make a smooth transition to The College of New Jersey, Montclair State College, Rider University, Rutgers University, Thomas Edison State College and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. For students who are undecided about where they plan to continue their education, Mercer maintains transfer agreements with hundreds of four-year schools.
At the Open House, representatives from the dual admissions colleges will answer questions about their schools and discuss how Mercer’s transfer students have succeeded there. A panel that will include members of the college’s Admissions and Transfer offices will present information on financial aid and scholarship opportunities, and will answer questions. Exhibits from some of Mercer’s 65 associate degree and numerous certificate programs will be on display.
“The Open House is appropriate for those who are considering Mercer as the place to start, and also for those who want to earn credits that can transfer to their chosen four-year college,” said Tosh. “MCCC is a good place for students who are undecided about their major. Here they can discover their interests and hone their skills in a friendly environment so they are ready to excel when they move on to a four-year college.”
The event takes place at the Student Center on Mercer’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. For further information or to reserve a seat call the Admissions Office at 609-586-0505 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
