Rutgers–Camden and Camden County College Expand Partnership to Help More South Jersey Residents Earn Bachelor’s Degrees from Rutgers

CAMDEN – An expanded partnership between Camden County College and Rutgers–Camden will offer new opportunities for college students in Camden County and all of southern New Jersey.

During a special ceremony at Camden County College’s Blackwood campus on Monday, Sept. 29, CCC President Ray Yannuzzi and Rutgers–Camden Chancellor Phoebe Haddon signed new agreements that make the transition process even more streamlined.

The agreement provides Camden County College’s students the opportunity to gain admission to Rutgers University–Camden to earn a bachelor’s degree upon completion of their associate’s degree and meeting the appropriate transfer admissions requirements. Any student from southern New Jersey who enrolls at Camden County College is covered under this new agreement.

Rutgers–Camden currently offers its bachelor degree-granting programs in business administration, liberal studies, and psychology on Camden County College’s Blackwood campus, which help students seamlessly earn their Rutgers bachelor’s degrees upon completion of their CCC associate’s degrees. Rutgers–Camden plans to introduce a degree-granting program in criminal justice that will be offered at CCC’s Blackwood campus in fall 2015.

Starting this spring, the Rutgers School of Business–Camden will offer its M.B.A. program at CCC’s Cherry Hill campus.

“Many students who graduate from Camden County College choose Rutgers–Camden in order to earn a world-class bachelor’s degree. Working together, our two institutions are helping area residents achieve their career and personal goals in a more convenient and expedient manner,” says Phoebe Haddon, chancellor of the Rutgers–Camden campus.

“This partnership further expands opportunities for our graduates to start their education at CCC as well as complete their bachelor’s degree on our campus,” said Camden County College President Raymond Yannuzzi. “To offer baccalaureate studies on our main campus in popular programs that provide students with highly marketable skills, and to do so in partnership with a world-class university, is a great benefit to not only Camden County, but also the entire region.”

The two institutions also partner on initiatives designed to maximize public investment and advance South Jersey’s students, including the University District Bookstore, which serves students on the Camden campuses of Rutgers, Rowan, and Camden County College. Through articulation agreements, Camden County College students in the City of Camden utilize a number of services on the Rutgers–Camden campus, including access to the Rutgers research library system.

International students who enroll at Camden County College have the opportunity to live in on-campus housing at Rutgers University–Camden while they pursue their associate’s degrees.
