Pact with CCC Expands Student Possibilities for Rutgers–Camden Study

Every student who enrolls at Camden County College will receive conditional acceptance into Rutgers University–Camden, thanks to an agreement signed by officials from both institutions Monday. The same agreement gives any student from any of the eight South Jersey counties – Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Ocean and Salem – who applies to Rutgers–Camden for freshman-year admission and is denied conditional acceptance if they subsequently enroll at CCC.

As long as the student completes a Camden County College associate degree and satisfies program-specific requirements, he or she will gain admission to Rutgers–Camden. CCC students also will be given priority access into their selected transfer programs as over students applying from other institutions of higher education.

Signing the new pact were Raymond Yannuzzi, president of Camden County College, and Phoebe A. Haddon, chancellor of Rutgers–Camden. They joined state Sen. Donald Norcross, Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Freeholder Ian K. Leonard and CCC trustee chairman John T. Hanson in explaining the significance of the expanded partnership between the two schools to the audience of students, faculty, staff, government officials and community members who witnessed the signing on CCC’s Blackwood Campus.

Monday’s activity expands significantly the longtime partnership that Camden County College has maintained with Rutgers–Camden. Previous agreements between the institutions include bachelor’s degree-completion programs in business administration, liberal studies and psychology offered on the Blackwood Campus. They also include conditional acceptance pacts for CCC students into Rutgers–Camden’s College of Arts and Sciences or School of Business and for international students who want to attend CCC before transferring to Rutgers–Camden. There have been numerous articulation agreements and facility-sharing contracts as well. In addition, CCC offers a bachelor of science in nursing degree program on its Blackwood Campus in cooperation with the Rutgers College of Nursing, Newark and New Brunswick.

Also announced Monday was the new umbrella title for the entire partnership between the institutions: Rutgers University at Camden County College.
