Stockton, Atlantic Cape Ink Agreement for Dual Degree Program
Galloway Twp. – The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and Atlantic Cape Community College have entered into an Articulation Agreement for a new Dual Degree Program (DDP) that promises to benefit local students by increasing degrees earned, and reducing the cost of their education.
The agreement, formalized with a signing ceremony today, also streamlines the transfer and admission process into Stockton. Upon successful completion, students earn an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree from Atlantic Cape as well as their Stockton Baccalaureate degree in their chosen program of study.
Stockton President Herman J. Saatkamp and Atlantic Cape Community College President Peter Mora officially signed the agreement in the Grand Hall of Stockton’s Campus Center.
“Stockton is proud to partner with Atlantic Cape to offer a Dual Degree Program to students in Atlantic and Cape May Counties,” Stockton President Herman J. Saatkamp said. “This program will ease the transfer and admission processes, and provide credit to Atlantic Cape for work completed there before transferring to Stockton College. This program provides the opportunity to earn degrees from both institutions.”
Students participating in the program have the opportunity to reach their educational goals in a cost-effective manner, paying the Atlantic Cape tuition rate for all or part of their lower division coursework and paying the senior public tuition rate once they transition to Stockton with as many as 64 earned credits. Students who meet the program requirements will be guaranteed admission to Stockton without loss of credit earned, up to 64 credits.
“The Dual Degree Program agreement between Atlantic Cape and The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey offers students incredible opportunities. The program will give students an incentive to complete their associate degrees at Atlantic Cape and receive greater access to Stockton at the junior level,” Dr. Mora said.
