Brookdale Community College in Lincroft and William Paterson University in Wayne entered into a joint admission and formal transfer agreement, the schools announced Aug. 30.
The associate transfer agreements provide transfer into bachelor of science degree programs that include marketing, management, finance, accounting, biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental science and mathematics, and bachelor of arts degree programs in political science, sociology, psychology, public health, health studies, criminology and criminal justice, communications, media studies, music studies, leadership and professional studies, and liberal studies.
“I want to thank William Paterson officials who worked closely on this pathway for the best interest of our students,” said BCC President David Stout in a prepared statement. “Together, we have the potential to break through academic, financial, and other barriers and reach the individuals in the community who most need access to an affordable college education. These programs with this outstanding institution will ensure that our students leave ready for the next step.”
This Pioneer Pathways Joint Admissions Agreement gives Brookdale students the opportunity to take courses at William Paterson‘s campus or online, the announcement said. Scholarships are available and students admitted through the joint admission program will have their application fees waived.
Dual advising will also be available and they can attend William Paterson University events and activities while enrolled at Brookdale.
