Chestnut Hill College has signed a new agreement with Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg, N.J., allowing students to easily transfer from the two-year school after earning their associate’s degree.
The “Dual Admissions, Transfer and Core-to-Core Agreement” stipulates that students who receive an associate’s degree from Raritan Valley Community College may transfer into a bachelor’s degree program at CHC’s School of Undergraduate Studies or School of Continuing & Professional Studies with junior-year status as long as they fulfill certain requirements. Students may enroll either full-time or part-time at CHC.
“We are proud to partner with Raritan Valley Community College. Both of our institutions strive to keep students as our focus, offering opportunities for critical thinking, leadership, and personal and professional growth while instilling a love for lifelong learning,” says Jodie K. Smith, vice president for enrollment management.
“With this agreement, RVCC graduates will be able to continue their educational pursuits and achieve a bachelor’s degree at Chestnut Hill College in a seamless fashion. We look forward to welcoming RVCC graduates to our campus as well as expanding our partnership with RVCC in the future,” she adds.
“The new agreement with Chestnut Hill College offers a wonderful opportunity for RVCC students to continue their education and complete their bachelor’s degree at a competitive Philadelphia college. As an added benefit, RVCC graduates transferring to CHC may be eligible for substantial scholarships or discounted tuition,” says RVCC President Michael J. McDonough.
Academic scholarships depend on the transferring student’s grade point average and membership in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. To take advantage of the transfer agreement, RVCC students must maintain the requisite grade point average, fill out an “Intent to Enroll” form in their final year of study at RVCC, and complete at least 45 academic credits at Chestnut Hill College.
