Students who begin their college education at County College of Morris (CCM) in Randolph can seamlessly transfer to Drew University and get a four-year degree in a number of selected majors, thanks to a new dual
admissions agreement between Drew University and CCM.
CCM President Edward J. Yaw and Drew University President Vivian A. Bull signed the historic admissions agreement on February 12, 2014.
“We’re proud to be able to build upon our long-standing relationship with Drew University to offer this dual-admission program that will allow our students to seamlessly earn both their associate and bachelor’s degrees,” said Dr. Edward J. Yaw, president, County College of Morris.
Starting in the fall of 2014, CCM students with a 3.0 GPA or higher, may apply to transfer to Drew University upon completing certain conditions of admission:
- Submitting a “Dual Admission Intent” form to Drew University before earning 45 credits at CCM
- Submitting a completed application to Drew University including CCM transcripts
- Graduating in good standing with an associate in arts (A.A.), associate in science (A.S.) or associate in fine arts (AFA) degree
- Enrolling at Drew within one year of graduation from CCM
By completing these requirements, CCM students will be enrolled as juniors at Drew University, a private, liberal arts university, and can earn bachelor’s degrees in the following majors under the dual admission agreement: biology, chemistry, English, history, psychology or art history.
There also is an opportunity for CCM students studying Humanities/Social Sciences to transfer into certain majors at Drew.
“This is an innovative partnership that will provide a new way for students to obtain a four-year degree,” said Bull. “We are excited to have an admissions agreement with our closest neighboring county college. Many CCM students already transfer to Drew. This will make that transition even easier.”
Under the dual admissions program, credits earned by CCM students participating in the program will transfer to Drew. In addition, prior to transferring, the students may take one class on the Drew campus while paying the CCM tuition rate.
With this dual admissions program, CCM students can look ahead and see what courses they will need at Drew that they can take at CCM at its tuition rate,” noted Kaylie McNeil of Mt. Tabor, who graduated from CCM last
fall and is now enrolled in the Environmental Studies & Sustainability program at Drew. “For me starting at CCM and finishing at Drew, I’m coming out ahead.”
