MCCC Information Session Explores
Planning for a Four-Year Degree Oct. 15

9/18/08


Easing student transfer to four-year colleges is one of MCCC's central goals. Mercer invites high school students and their parents to an Information Session on Wednesday, Oct. 15, where they will learn how they can earn college credits and/or an associate's degree and then transfer for their bachelor's degree. The event starts at 6 p.m., in the Student Center on MCCC's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Administrators and admissions representatives from MCCC and New Jersey four-year colleges will present a panel discussion on admission procedures, financial aid, support services, dual admissions agreements, transfer options and procedures, counseling services, and opportunities for athletes. The discussion will be led by MCCC's Laurene Jones, director of transfer, career and counseling services. Among the four-year schools that will participate are The College of New Jersey, Rider University, Drexel University, Montclair State University, and Kean University.

Students will also learn about the NJ Stars Program, which provides free community college tuition for New Jersey high school students who graduate in the top 20 percent of their class, as well as MCCC's Jumpstart Program, which enables high school students to take courses at MCCC and earn college credits.
