County College of Morris Signs another Transfer Agreement with Rutgers University


Students Provided Direct Transfer to Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy - Posted 4/1/16
County College of Morris (CCM) and Rutgers University signed a formal agreement on March 31 launching the Bloustein Direct Admit Program. This program will enable CCM students majoring in health administration, public health, public policy, and urban planning and design to directly transfer with full credit to their third year at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.

The articulation agreement, signed by CCM President Edward J. Yaw and Dean James Hughes of Bloustein, allows students who graduate with an associate degree from CCM to have all their credits, up to a maximum of 60, considered for transfer to a bachelor’s degree program at Bloustein located on Rutgers’ New Brunswick campus.

“CCM has a longstanding relationship with Rutgers University and this agreement takes it to another level,” said Yaw. “This program makes the transfer process seamless, as advisors from both institutions will help students stay on track to earn both their associate degree and a bachelor’s degree. I expect that it will result in more of our students transferring to Rutgers.”

“Partnerships between our community colleges and four-year institutions are important in keeping the completion of a baccalaureate degree affordable,” said Dr. Raphael J. Caprio, director, Undergraduate Programs for Bloustein. “The Bloustein School regards highly the preparation received by CCM graduates and, as evident with the articulation agreement, welcomes them to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in one of our five major programs on the New Brunswick campus.”  

Other CCM administrators in attendance included Dr. Dwight Smith, vice president of Academic Affairs; Monica Maraska, dean, Health and Natural Sciences; Dr. Bruce Dutra, dean, Liberal Arts; Dr. Bette Simmons, vice president of Student Development and Enrollment Management; and Kari Hawkins, transfer coordinator.

The launching of this new transfer agreement is in addition to the degree program Rutgers offers on the CCM campus that allows students to earn a bachelor’s in criminal justice, psychology, and public and nonprofit administration. It also adds to the long list of transfer agreements CCM already holds with a number of other colleges and universities to make it easier for students to earn their bachelor’s degrees.
