With more than 850 graduates, Gloucester County College’s 44th commencement ceremony took place on Friday, May 17. Well-poised for the future, many of these graduates are already accepted to the transferring college of their choice, as GCC offers Instant Decision Transfer Day in February of their second year. This year’s graduates have decided on Drexel, Montclair, Temple, Rowan, Rutgers, Stockton and Wilmington Universities, just to name a few.
More than 60 percent of our graduates transfer to four-year universities. That number will continue to increase with the College’s Dual Advantage program which allows students to immediately start working toward their bachelor’s degree from the very first day of classes at GCC. The Dual Advantage program recently expanded with newcomers Rutgers University – Camden and Neumann University. The College now has dual acceptance agreements with six university partners, including Fairleigh Dickinson, Rowan, University of Maryland –University College and Wilmington.
One personal success story is that of Lauren Anderson-Pullinger. She is the first and only student to graduate from GCC with a Biology — Bioscience Technologies associate degree, and will continue her studies at Thomas Jefferson University in the fall.
This is just one testimonial of what GCC can do for higher education goals. Goals achieved with a substantial savings without sacrificing quality instruction or personal advisement.
Congratulations Class of 2013 for starting “smart” at GCC and best wishes for future success.
