Admission of Students Participating in Dual Degree/Joint Admission & Program-to-Program Agreements with Community Colleges

Georgian Court University is a full participant in the NJ Transfer initiative (, which students should refer to for course-by-course equivalencies between Georgian Court University and the community colleges within the state of New Jersey.

In addition, GCU has signed dual degree/joint admission agreements with some community colleges that facilitate transfer to GCU for associate degree holders through benefits such as special tuition discounts, careful guidance in course selection, and recommended community college associate degree pathways to increase the likelihood that students will be able to complete the GCU bachelor’s degree program in two years. More details and a listing of the recommended associate degree pathways are available in the GCU Office of Graduate and Continuing Education.

GCU also has some detailed course-by-course, program-to-program articulation agreements with community colleges. These articulation agreements are designed to assist students who wish to transfer into the Georgian Court University bachelor’s degree programs listed in the second column of Table II-F after successfully completing the associate degree programs listed in the first column. Refer to Table II-F for a list of community college program-to-program articulation agreements. Georgian Court University agrees to accept, in transfer, credit for all of the courses identified in the Transfer Curricula for each of the community college degree programs listed in Table II-F. The Transfer Curricula are available in the GCU Office of Admissions.

Students participating in a dual degree/joint admission agreement or program-to-program agreement will be guaranteed admission to the GCU program of their choice if they satisfy the GPA and any other special admission requirements as outlined in the GCU catalog. It is the responsibility of the student to provide Georgian Court University with a final, official community college transcript that lists all courses completed and states that an associate degree has been awarded.

Brookdale Community College, Mercer County Community College, Middlesex County College, Ocean County College, and Rowan College of South Jersey–Cumberland Campus students participating in one of these programs will complete the Georgian Court University transfer application by the regular deadlines of August 1 for the fall semester and January 1 for the spring semester, although students are strongly encouraged to apply at least four months before the intended semester of enrollment. The Georgian Court University application fee will be waived.
