Wilmington University and Camden County College Join Forces
New Agreement Allows Students to Earn WilmU Degrees in Blackwood and Camden, NJ
Camden County College (CCC) and Wilmington University (WilmU) today teamed up to bring residents of Camden County affordable WilmU bachelor’s and master’s degrees—on the campus of CCC in Blackwood, Camden City, NJ, and 100% online.
CCC President Donald A. Borden said, “Like WilmU, Camden County College wants to provide accessible and affordable, high quality educational opportunities for students to seamlessly transfer to four-year degree programs that would otherwise have cost them thousands of dollars more during their first two years in college. This partnership is just another example of the many opportunities available to students who choose to take advantage of the both the high quality education and the fiscal rewards offered by completing their A.A. or A.S. degrees on our campus.”
“Wilmington University will serve Camden County College students and alumni with the same degree of care they have come to know from CCC, while providing strong bachelor’s and master’s degree completion programs. Our partnership offers students the opportunity to earn in-demand, higher-level degrees without leaving the area,” said Dr. LaVerne Harmon, President of Wilmington University.
Dr. Jacqueline Varsalona, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at WilmU, adds, “Our agreement allows Camden County College students and alumni to seamlessly transfer into Wilmington University programs right at Camden County College, or through our award-winning online campus, which provides the flexibility many working adults need.”
WilmU helps Camden County College students maximize their transfer credits by accepting their entire associate degree—up to ninety credits—toward a bachelor’s degree completion program.
