New Automatic Transfer Initiative Approved

Montclair State and Bergen Community College (BCC) have formalized a dual-enrollment automatic transfer initiative allowing BCC associate degree candidates to transfer seamlessly to Montclair State to pursue bachelor’s degrees in selected programs. The partnership not only creates a new pathway for students to pursue affordable higher education in New Jersey, but also expands the two-plus-two model that enables associate degree candidates to pursue four-year degrees.

To be eligible, students who enrolled in fall 2016 or later at BCC must pursue and eventually complete the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees. Program Participants can then choose one of 17 specially designated majors at Montclair State.

“Bergen Community College has long been a close collaborator and our largest source of community college transfers, and this partnership will capitalize on that relationship,” says Montclair State University Director of Undergraduate Admissions Jeffrey Indiveri-Gant. “We want to make the process of transferring to a four-year institution as seamless as possible.”
