Stockton University and Atlantic Cape Community College recently signed a new partnership that will help students make a smooth transition from the two-year-college to a four-year bachelor’s degree program.
The “Stockton University at Atlantic Cape” program enhances existing agreements and will provide students with more opportunities to earn both associate and bachelor’s degrees.
Stockton welcomed 988 transfer students this fall, and 208 of them, more than 20 percent, came from Atlantic Cape Community College.
The terms of the partnership include:
- Students in the program who earn their associate degree at Atlantic Cape can enter Stockton as fully-matriculated juniors. Any Stockton application fees will be waived for participating students.
- Eligible students who apply to, but are not admitted to Stockton as freshmen, can instead attend Atlantic Cape but receive counseling and advising from both Stockton and Atlantic Cape. All eligible students will receive a letter conditionally accepting them to Stockton University at Atlantic Cape. They will be officially admitted to Stockton upon receiving their associate degree.
- Credits earned at Stockton can also be applied to an associate degree at Atlantic Cape in a “reverse transfer” agreement.
- Stockton will provide five annual scholarships of $2,000 to top performing Atlantic Cape graduates who enroll at Stockton through this agreement.
- Students enrolled in the “Stockton University at Atlantic Cape” program will be eligible to apply for Stockton housing.
- Atlantic Cape will prominently display a “Stockton University at Atlantic Cape” banner at its Atlantic City Campus to signify the importance of the relationship.
