“While Centenary University has many articulation agreements with community colleges, this is the first of its kind for us,” said Centenary President Haney. “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.”

President 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,” he said. “This is an exciting partnership and a great opportunity for students.”
