The county college is set to become Rowan College of Gloucester County on July 1, 2014, according to the report. That’s when the schools will enter into a three-year arrangement in which students at the county college will sign a non-binding letter of intent to complete their college careers at the university, according to the report.
Once students earn their degree, they will be conditionally accepted to Rowan, based on their grade point average (GPA). They will be permitted to finish their degree at Rowan University’s Glassboro campus, or enroll in Rowan University classes at the Gloucester County campus at a 15 percent discount, according to the report.
The arrangement is not a full merger between the schools, and employees will remain unaffected, according to the report.
Rowan University already receives most of its transfer students from the county college, and has a goal of adding 10,000 students over the next decade, according to the report.
