Transferring to Other Colleges

A.A. and A.S. transfer degree options at Atlantic Cape Community College are built on a strong foundation of liberal arts and general education courses, in which graduates can feel confident of developing proficiencies in the areas of communication, mathematics, science, technology, social science, humanities, history and diversity. Colleges both within and outside of New Jersey consistently recognize the value of Atlantic Cape courses by accepting them into upper division programs. However, as in the case of all transfer situations, student performance and appropriate course selections to the intended academic program are the two most critical factors.

A College counselor or advisor is the key resource to assist students in all their transfer planning needs, such as college and course selections, application preparation and college research. In support of this function, the College has a fully computerized career decision-making program, which also provides students with comprehensive data on nearly every U.S. community college, college or university. Access to Internet-based transfer information is available in the Career and Academic Planning Center.

A.A.S. degrees are not designed to be transfer programs, however, Atlantic Cape has articulation agreements for A.A.S. degrees with various colleges and universities.
