On Monday, June 27, 2022, The Community College of Philadelphia hosted a signing event that celebrated the new program-to-program transfer partnership for eligible college graduates.
Interested students must receive an associates degree in majors that correspond to Rowan University’s undergraduate programs, such as Engineering, Mathematics, and other various programs.
Other programs that Rowan University offers to CCP graduates include Black studies, computer science, construction management, Mathematics, and sound recording and music technology.
CCP President Dr. Donald “Guy” Generals expressed that Rowan University is a top notch institution that offers an abundance of learning opportunities for students.
“The College is excited to partner with Rowan University to ensure that our graduates can seamlessly and affordably complete their undergraduate degree,” said Dr. Generals. “Not only is Rowan a nationally-ranked public research institution, but they have a great reputation for preparing students for the workforce. The latter is more important now than ever.”
Rowan President Dr. Ali A. Houshmand was also in attendance and said that CCP students will continue to receive a great education once they enter the Glassboro, NJ institution.
“Community College of Philadelphia has very high standards so we know that their students will
succeed at Rowan,” Houshmand said. “We have created a variety of pathways for community
college graduates to continue on and attain an affordable four-year degree.”
Students who are considering attending Rowan after graduating from CCP will also have access to Rowan LSAMP and STEM programming while still attending the College, as well as be considered for entry to Rowan’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs.
This month, CCP has seen a lot of growth within its institution. Just earlier this month, the college expanded once again when its music production studio officially opened.
Spring Garden Studio Records officially opened its doors on June 6, 2022, on CCP’s main campus inside of the Mint Building.
The College is hoping to get more students to join their Sound Recording and Music Technology program.
In addition to its expansion, The College also stated that they are relieving $1.4 million in student loans. The loan forgiveness will help over 1,900 students who are struggling to pay off their remaining balances.
This will give students the opportunity to focus on registering for Fall 2022 classes and start the new school year with a clean slate.
