MCCC Signs Transfer Agreements with
La Salle and Johnson and Wales Universities


Mercer County Community College (MCCC) has recently signed two new articulation agreements that will ease the transfer process for graduates who wish to continue their education at La Salle University in Pennsylvania or Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island.

A student who completes an MCCC degree program with at least a 2.5 grade point average in Business Administration, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Liberal Arts or Biology will be granted admission to La Salle. Up to 70 credits can be transferred. Students who attend the main campus in Philadelphia are eligible for scholarships that range from $6,000 to $15,000.

In addition to this agreement, a special program has been established for Mercer students who graduate with a degree in Business Administration and then transfer to the Bucks Center of La Salle in Newtown, PA. Their Business completion program offers a reduced tuition rate; classes meet Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon. With careful planning, MCCC Business Administration graduates can complete this bachelor’s program in two years.

Johnson & Wales University is one of the country’s pre-eminent institutions for preparing students for careers in the culinary and hotel industries. The new agreement details which credits will transfer and which additional credits would be needed in order to complete bachelor’s degrees in Culinary Arts and Food Service Management, Hotel and Lodging Management, and Restaurant, Food and Beverage Management. Mercer students must maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average to transfer.While New Jersey community college credits transfer seamlessly to New Jersey state colleges, MCCC offers abundant transfer opportunities through agreements with colleges nationwide. Through its University Center at Mercer, students can also earn their bachelor’s degree at MCCC’s West Windsor campus through William Paterson University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Felician College.
