Dr. David P. Haney, Centenary University President, and Dr. Anthony J. Iacono, President of County College of Morris (CCM), signed a Path to Transfer Program agreement today.  This agreement guarantees a seamless transition for qualifying CCM graduates at Centenary University. 

Both institutions have recognized the importance of completing an associate degree before students transfer to a four-year institution. Students who complete an associate degree at CCM will receive a Path to Transfer Award.  In addition, Path to Transfer students will be eligible for a Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society scholarship if they become an active member, as well as a Centenary University Recognition Award.  Lastly, all students who have become Centenary students through the Path to Transfer Program Agreement will be considered for all institutional aid that is available to Centenary University students.

“While Centenary University has many articulation agreements with community colleges, this is the first of its kind for us,” said Dr. David P. Haney, Centenary University President. “This is a wonderful partnership that is designed to make this process as seamless as possible.  It also provides students who come to us as Path to Transfer students with additional financial incentives based on degree completion at CCM.”  Dr. Iacono echoed Dr. Haney’s sentiment in recognizing the importance of the agreement.  “We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Centenary as part of our ongoing efforts to make it easier for CCM students to also earn a bachelor’s degree,” said Dr. Anthony Iacono, CCM President. "This is an exciting partnership and a great opportunity for students."
