New Jersey Partnerships Continue to Grow

More opportunities abound for New Jersey residents to transfer seamlessly to Wilmington University after earning their associate degrees at community colleges throughout the state.

WilmU President Dr. LaVerne Harmon and Rowan College at Burlington County President Dr. Michael Cioce sign the Online Programs Pathway Agreement.

This summer, the University partnered with Mercer County Community College to offer area residents more higher education options. The agreement enables students to earn bachelor’s degrees from Wilmington on MCCC’s James Kerney Campus in Trenton. Initially, WilmU will offer degree programs in three majors at MCCC: Criminal Justice, Media Design and a master’s of Education degree in School Leadership. Eventually, the program will be expanded to include Health Sciences and Software Design.

While the University has partnered with Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) for 10 years, the institutions joined forces in July to establish the Online Programs Pathway Agreement, which will offer unprecedented opportunities to RCBC’s online students (pictured above). As the latest in a history of academic partnerships between WilmU and RCBC, the agreement continues the colleges’ missions to combine practical, experience-based education with flexible course formats to provide the benefits of higher education on a local, economical scale. The agreement also establishes WilmU as RCBC’s preferred partner for online degree completion programs, and guarantees that students who have earned associate degrees online at RCBC can apply those credits toward related bachelor’s programs at WilmU.

WilmU also embraces New Jersey partnerships with Camden County College, Cumberland County College, Rowan College at Gloucester County, Salem Community College and at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
