RANDOLPH, NJ - Top honor students at CCM will now be able to earn scholarships to Drew University under an agreement signed by County College of Morris President Edward J. Yaw and Drew University President MaryAnn Baenninger. Students will transition to Drew to earn their bachelor's degrees.
Under the agreement, "CCM students who successfully complete a minimum of four honors courses at the county college, earn a minimum 3.25 grade point average (GPA) and transfer to Drew will receive scholarships from the university to continue their studies".
“We’re delighted that Drew has developed yet another pathway for CCM students to seamlessly transfer to the university and pursue a bachelor’s degree more affordably,” said Yaw. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for CCM students who earn their associate degree to also earn a bachelor’s degree from a highly respected liberal arts university.”

The agreement continues by stating that "admitted students with a GPA of 3.75 will receive a $25,000 Honors Scholarship, those with a GPA of 3.5 or higher will receive a $20,000 Presidential Scholarship, and those who earn a 3.25 GPA or higher will receive a $15,000 Deans Scholarship".
Students are required to maintain the appropriate GPA and qualified students will be able to take up to two courses at Drew at no cost while still at CCM. Those students who are admitted to Drew, will enter as juniors.
“We are so proud to be able to offer qualified students at County College of Morris the opportunity to attend Drew through this unique agreement," said Baenninger. “Besides taking classes at Drew while still at CCM, this agreement will make college more affordable by offering a range of honors scholarships to these high-achieving students as they complete their baccalaureate degrees."
"On behalf of the Morris County Board of Freeholders, I want to thank Drew University for this program and congratulate CCM for its efforts in providing ongoing opportunities to CCM students," commented Freeholder John Krickus, a Drew University graduate, and liaison to CCM for the county governing board.
