A new agreement enables Mercer County Community College (MCCC) students to begin their education in a Dual Admissions program with Jersey City’s Saint Peter’s College.

MCCC President Robert Rose and Saint Peter’s College Provost Eugene Cornacchia signed the agreement this month. Students will be able to enter Saint Peter’s with junior status after they complete an associate degree from Mercer with a minimum 2.5 grade point average. Once enrolled at Saint Peter’s, students will qualify for a $2,500 transfer award, with the possibility of additional scholarships including Phi Theta Kappa and merit scholarships.

Saint Peter’s College is one of 28 Catholic Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States and the only one in New Jersey. The college offers 38 bachelor’s degree programs and master’s degree programs in Education, Business Administration, Accountancy and Nursing.

More than half of MCCC’s graduates continue their education at baccalaureate colleges and universities nationwide. To facilitate the process, Mercer maintains transfer agreements and offers Dual Admissions programs with many colleges and universities. The Transfer Office provides counseling and information at 609-586-4800 ext. 3307.
