MCCC Enters Into Dual Admissions Program and A.S. Degree Agreement in Business Programs With New Jersey City University

Dual admission and transfer agreement allows MCCC Business grads to seamlessly transfer credits to the four-year university in Jersey City.

West Windsor, N.J. - Mercer County Community College (MCCC) entered yet another agreement with a four-year university, this time with New Jersey City University (NJCU). MCCC students who complete an associate degree in Business Administration will be seamlessly admitted with full junior status to NJCU’s School of Business.

This innovative partnership allows Mercer students to transfer their A.S. in Business Administration to a number of NJCU programs, including Marketing, Finance, Accounting and more. Students can plan admission to NJCU as early as their first semester and may transfer at any point after earning their A.S. from Mercer.

“Mercer has articulation agreements with many institutions but this one is unique,” said MCCC President Dr. Jianping Wang. “The population NJCU serves in Jersey City is very similar to the populations we serve in New Jersey’s capital city.”

The MCCC-NJCU agreement is another advancement in long-term education planning for Mercer students. As part of the arrangement, Mercer students will have access to NJCU admissions and financial aid advisors. Moreover, the agreement guarantees eligible students will have their place at NJCU reserved, further easing their transition to the University.

According to Dr. Farah Bennani, dean of MCCC’s Business and STEM Division, “This partnership constitutes a milestone for our students.” She added that the partnership was made possible by the “collaborative efforts of Mercer Professors Laura Sosa, Josephine Mathias, Kenneth Horowitz and Jonathan Rowe, as well as the NJCU team.

“We have eliminated the challenges of transferring from a community college to a four-year university, thus improving our students’ chance of overall success while supporting state and national completion goals,” Bennani said. “It also validates our program and strengthens our long-standing relationship with NJCU.”

Prior to this collaboration, MCCC and NJCU initiated articulation and dual admissions agreements between the colleges’ criminal justice programs. Those partnerships provide guaranteed pathways for students to transfer to NJCU upon program completion at MCCC, as well as an opportunity for students to transfer in the event they were not eligible for dual admission.

Wang is very happy to see the work of many people bear fruit.

“I see these agreements paving the way for a lot of people,” she said.
