Sussex County Community College has signed an articulation agreement with New Jersey Institute of technology for both Information Systems and Computer Science degree programs and an articulation agreement with East Stroudsburg University for a Human Services degree program.

NJIT has complemented SCCC on the preparation of students from the college who have transferred into its programs. Every student from SCCC who has applied to NJIT has been accepted.

"The agreement will allow SCCC students who maintain a 2.5 GPA, and who graduate with an Associate in Science degree, to seamlessly transfer into NJIT’s Information Systems or Computer Science degree programs as third-year students, SCCC President Paul Mazur said. "In addition, NJIT has agreed to recognize specific SCCC courses as third-year level courses in their program thereby offering our students a head start on their junior year.”

The articulation agreement with ESU will allow students who graduate from SCCC with an Associate of Science in Human Services and a 2.5 GPA to seamlessly transfer into ESU’s Bachelor of Social Work Program. Students will enter ESU as juniors, and will be able to complete the Bachelor of Social Work degree within 2 years. The degree can lead to a license in most states, and provides students with the potential for advanced standing in Masters of Social Work programs around the country.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for students interested in becoming change agents in their communities by entering the social work field," said SCCC Social Science Department Chairwoman Naomi Miller. "The ESU program is excellent and students get an outstanding foundation in social work education at SCCC.”
