BERKELEY COLLEGE AND COUNTY COLLEGE OF MORRIS SIGN
ARTICULATION AGREEMENT, PROVIDING A MORE AFFORDABLE
PATH TO EARNING A BACHELOR’S DEGREE
Students can seamlessly transfer into a variety of programs at Berkeley College that will prepare them for positions in some of today’s most in-demand careers.
Berkeley College and the County College of Morris (CCM) signed an articulation agreement to ease the transfer process for CCM students who seek bachelor’s degrees in a variety of disciplines that prepare them for exciting careers. The agreement allows eligible CCM graduates with an Associate of Science degree in Business Administration or Criminal Justice to enter Berkeley College as juniors with their general-education core requirements fulfilled. These students can transfer all of their CCM credits, giving them half of the credits required for the Berkeley College bachelor’s degree programs included in the agreement.
“The articulation agreement between Berkeley College and the County College of Morris is an excellent fit because of our shared mission of providing students with degree options that lead to dynamic careers,” said Dario A. Cortes, PhD, President of Berkeley College. “CCM graduates will benefit from Berkeley’s seamless transfer process and may also apply for the Berkeley College Transfer Opportunity Program (T.O.P. Scholars), which provides scholarships to qualifying students.”
Edward J. Yaw, EdD, President of CCM, said that the new agreement with Berkeley College offers students a more affordable pathway for earning a bachelor’s degree.
“We’re pleased to be entering into this agreement with Berkeley, which will ease the transfer process for students in a total of nine academic disciplines,” Dr. Yaw said.
This articulation agreement between CCM and Berkeley College includes students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programs in the following fields at Berkeley: Accounting; Business Administration; Fashion Marketing and Management, Financial Services; Health Services Management; International Business; Justice Studies – Criminal Justice; Management and Marketing Communications.
Berkeley College provides traditional and online degree options and blended learning opportunities to prepare students for career success. Berkeley College was recently recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best Colleges in the Online Bachelor Degree category. The College offers a supportive, flexible, global learning environment that connects students with workplace experience in their area of study before they graduate.
