Students Can Now Enter a Dual Degree
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.
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.
