Students have a new option for high-quality four-year degrees in southern New Jersey through a new partnership announced today by Rowan University and Burlington County College, which will change its name to Rowan College at Burlington County.

Rowan College at Burlington County president Paul Drayton said students will have the opportunity to earn a four-year university degrees for less than what it costs to attend one year at many four-year universities.

Officials from both institutions unveiled the partnership on June 11, the night after both Boards of Trustees formally approved the agreement.

Under the partnership, all students at Rowan College at Burlington County will be accepted to Rowan University upon completion of their associate degree and certain program-specific requirements where applicable. Rowan University will begin offering select courses on the Mount Laurel campus, which will provide students a 15 percent discount. Rowan University will also provide $2,000 scholarships annually to five high-achieving Rowan College at Burlington County students.

Beginning immediately, all students from central New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, who are not accepted directly to Rowan University will be offered conditional admittance to the university through Rowan College at Burlington County, upon completion of their associate degree. This will create a pipeline of students to Rowan University through Burlington County.

The agreement specifies certain programs will be taught in Burlington County, most notably electrical engineering, computer engineering and a Master of Arts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. It also provides access to Rowan University’s online-degree completion programs.

The historic agreement does not affect the governance structure of either university, which will each be governed and operated independently and distinctly from each other. The pact was formally approved by both boards of trustees on June 10.
