Welcome to Rowan College at Burlington County!
With great pride, I am pleased to officially report to you that our community college has found a key piece toward solving the puzzle of making a high-quality university degree affordable for all students.
On June 10, the college formally approved an agreement with Rowan University, which offers many benefits – most notably the ability to earn a degree from Rowan University for about $30,000 – or less than the cost of one year at most private colleges throughout the nation. All of our graduates will be automatically accepted into Rowan University. Some specific program requirements may apply.
Except for the new name, Rowan College at Burlington County, some new signage and many new students on campus, we will continue to operate as an independent institution. While I encourage every student to consider Rowan University for a bachelor’s degree, our college continues to maintain transfer agreements with many high-quality institutions for students to choose from.
Other benefits of this agreement include:
- Rowan University programs on campus (with a 15 percent tuition discount) including computer and electrical engineering, computing and informatics and a master’s in STEM education, these programs may also include nursing and mechanical engineering later in the future.
- Access to online-degree completion programs including psychology, and law and justice.
- Five annual scholarships ($2,000 each) given by the university to top-performing Rowan College at Burlington County students.
The agreement stipulates that some onsite programs will be operational by fall 2017, but both institutions are working as hard as possible to bring them on board as soon as possible with respect to accreditation and enrollment. Please visit www.rcbc.edu/rowan, for the latest updates about this exciting partnership.
This agreement opens the door to the future for our college, and most importantly the students we serve. This is a historic occasion that will position our county as a national model for providing a path toward high-quality, affordable degrees.
Thank you for choosing our college, welcome to Rowan College at Burlington County and congratulations on your opportunity to attend Rowan University.
With great pride,
Rowan College at Burlington County
