Students who enroll at Atlantic Cape Community College will have a clear pathway to a four-year degree from Stockton University with a new partnership between the two post-secondary institutions.
Stockton always has accepted transfer students from Atlantic Cape, but the partnership will make the transition easier to transfer credits, waive fees and offer scholarship opportunities.
This fall, nearly 900 students entered Stockton as transfer students. Of them, 20 percent came from Atlantic Cape.
“We want to provide every student who wants it the opportunity to earn a four-year college degree,” Kesselman said. “This agreement will make it easier and more affordable for local students to continue their education, especially as we open our new Atlantic City campus in the fall of 2018.”
