12-18-09

WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- With high enrollment expected this spring at Mercer County Community College, students are advised to register early to be sure to get into their preferred classes. Again this semester, in addition to welcoming traditional college-age students, Mercer is set to serve many adult students who are out of work and seeking retraining, and those interested in updating their skills for career growth.

Credit classes for the spring semester begin Jan. 25 at the West Windsor Campus, the downtown Trenton James Kerney Campus, and online through The Virtual College. Previously-registered students can sign up online.

New this year are options in Solar/Energy Technology, Digital Film, Game Design, Global Business, Physics, and Insurance and Finance. Mercer’s nearly 70 associate degree programs include specialized majors in Aviation Flight Technology, Funeral Services and Horticulture/Plant Science, which attract students from throughout the region.

Three baccalaureate colleges now offer bachelor’s degree programs right on Mercer’s campus,
and MCCC students can transfer seamlessly into these programs. William Paterson University (WPU) offers degrees in Education, Liberal Arts and Psychology. Fairleigh Dickinson University offers Business, Hospitality Management, Communications and Criminal Justice, and Felician College offers a BS in Nursing.

Many students transfer locally to Rider University, The College of New Jersey, or Thomas Edison State College. Recent New Jersey legislation ensures that community college credits will transfer easily to all four-year state colleges, and Mercer also holds dual admissions and transfer agreements with other colleges nationwide.

For those who wish to begin a career right after graduation, choices include programs such as Nursing, Medical Lab Technology, Physical Therapist Assistant, Law Enforcement, Entertainment Technology and Graphic Design.

Mercer offers many services to assist students, such as free tutoring, academic advisement and assistance with financial aid. Highly motivated students may be eligible for the Honors Program, which provides an enriched college experience.
