Burlington County College president David C. Hespe and other representative signed a Guaranteed Admission Program transfer agreement with Saint Joseph’s University April 22 at the college’s Culinary Arts Center in Mount Holly.
According to the agreement, BCC students can use a structured method to gain guaranteed admission to SJU in Philadelphia, Pa.
Students studying biology, accounting, chemistry, pharmaceutical and healthcare marketing, business administration, finance, marketing and sociology can complete their associates degree then seamlessly transfer to SJU as juniors to earn a bachelor’s degree.
In order to participate in GAP, BCC students must complete all core courses, earn their associate degrees and sign the Intent to Transfer form before they have registered for their 30th credit.
This program includes a specific academic plan developed by SJU and BCC for each major and a checklist of core course credits that will transfer to SJU if the student earns a grade of C or better.
Students also must have earned a cumulative GPA of 2.70 or higher at the time of transfer.
