WEST WINDSOR – Mercer County Community College (MCCC) and Delaware Valley University officially signed a transfer articulation agreement May 27 that will give Mercer students the option to transfer to DelVal and complete a bachelor’s degree in any of 14 academic programs.

“We wanted to develop a seamless pathway for MCCC associate degree graduates to transfer to DelVal without losing credits from their quality experience at Mercer,” said Art Goon, vice president for enrollment management at DelVal.

“The guaranteed admission and core-to-core components will ensure that all the courses earned at MCCC will transfer to a DelVal bachelor’s degree,” Goon added.

MCCC graduates from 14 academic programs will be able to easily transfer into related bachelor's degree programs at DelVal under the Program-to-Program Agreement. The MCCC associate degree programs include: Biology, Business Administration, Global Business, Sports Management, Chemistry, Communications (all options), Criminal Justice (Corrections and Law Enforcement), Liberal Arts, and Horticulture. Required grade point averages for transfer range from 2.0 to 2.5, depending on the choice of major.

In addition, Mercer students transferring to DelVal will be eligible for transfer scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $19,500 per academic year for full-time students, and $1,500 per semester for part-time students. Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) honor society members will also receive an additional $1,000 per academic year through a PTK scholarship.

“MCCC continues to educate outstanding students who are extremely prepared to continue and earn bachelor’s degrees,” said DelVal President Dr. Joseph Brosnan. “It is important that we make a DelVal education affordable. We are pleased to provide these scholarships, and look forward to welcoming more MCCC students as a result of this new agreement."

MCCC President Dr. Jianping Wang said improving accessibility to a quality, affordable education and providing a clear path to earn a bachelor’s degree is a priority at Mercer, noting that in recent months the college has inked similar agreements with Fairleigh Dickinson University, Rider University, and most recently, Rowan University. Adding DelVal as a partner in education is an important step toward making a four-year college degree a realistic goal for all students, she said.

“Increasing accessibility to a four-year college degree is one of our primary goals at Mercer County Community College, and we are proud to welcome Delaware Valley University as a partner in providing a quality, affordable education to our students,” Wang said.

Located in Doylestown, Pa., Delaware Valley University is an independent, comprehensive university in Bucks and Montgomery counties. DelVal offers more than 25 undergraduate majors in the sciences, humanities and business, more than five master’s programs, a Doctor of Education and a variety of adult education courses.
