Creating a Seamless Pathway for CCM Transfer Students to WVU

CCMCounty College of Morris and West Virginia University have signed a Guaranteed Admission Agreement to make it easier for CCM students to effectively and efficiently transition from an associate degree at the Morris County institution to a bachelor’s degree in a variety of disciplines at WVU.

The agreement provides a clear pathway for students to transfer their credits from CCM to WVU to earn bachelor’s degrees in more than 15 disciplines.

They include: anthropology, biology, business, ceramics, chemistry, criminology, human nutrition and food, international studies, journalism, mathematics, painting, physics, political science, printmaking, psychology, sculpture, Slavic and Eastern European studies, sociology and strategic communications.

wvuCCM is the first school in New Jersey to sign such an agreement with WVU that finalizes the acceptance of equivalent courses/credits between the two schools. Under terms of the agreement, CCM students who graduate with an A.A., A.S. or an AAS degree, have a transferable GPA of at least 2.0 and are in good standing are guaranteed admission to WVU.

“This agreement represents an exciting opportunity for CCM students to advance their educational and career goals and is yet another example of why choosing CCM is a smart choice,” said CCM President Anthony J. Iacono. “We are proud and appreciative of West Virginia University’s support and are confident that students who choose to continue their education at WVU will enjoy a rigorous and rewarding academic environment.”

“The educational preparation at CCM will provide a strong foundation for advanced programs at WVU,” said Sue Day-Perroots, associate provost for undergraduate academic affairs at WVU.  “CCM students will join a number of other students from New Jersey who have found an academic home in Morgantown.”

This agreement is in addition to the more than 85 transfer arrangements CCM already holds with other four-year colleges and universities to provide its graduates with a seamless process for transferring credits to earn their bachelor’s degrees. Learn more about CCM’s transfer agreements.
