A new partnership between Gloucester County College (GCC) and Neumann University could make the process of transferring to the four-year school easier for GCC students.
The agreement, officially unveiled last week, consists of a dual enrollment/articulation program that allows students who earn credits at GCC to transfer their credits to Neumann in Aston, PA, through a program known as the "Neumann Connection." The program will make the process of transferring credits easier and also give students the opportunity to receive academic scholarships ranging from $6,000 to $12,000.
Gloucester County College President Frederick Keating appeared with Neumann University President Rosalie Mirenda last week to announce the partnership.
“We are here today to launch a new academic relationship with Neumann University,” Keating stated at the event. “Each student in the program will begin his or her academic journey at the community college, secure in the knowledge that a quality education at an affordable price awaits with automatic acceptance into the four-year institution.”
To be eligible for the program, students must graduate from GCC with an associate or professional development degree, maintain a 2.0 GPA through their academic career and be eligible to enter Neumann as a junior the following semester. Students who are in the program can transfer up to 90 credits to Neumann.
Students do not have to enroll in the program if they want to transfer to Neumann. For students who are not enrolled in the program, they will be able to transfer credits according to course-to-course equivalency that has been established between the two schools.
