When you Graduate

AA programs are primarily designed for
students who plan to transfer as juniors
at four-year colleges and universities.
CCC graduates have obtained bachelor’s
degrees and beyond from every college
in New Jersey and scores of colleges and
universities throughout America.
As a graduate of a fully accredited
community college, your coursework will
be received with full credit transfer at
most state colleges, public and private
universities across the country. The NJ
Lampitt bill passed in 2008 by the NJ State
legislature assures seamless transfer of
credits toward junior standing at NJ state
colleges and universities.

who wish to transfer to a four-year college
