Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg and Drew University in Madison have entered into an agreement that provides financial incentives for RVCC graduates to earn a bachelor's degree and Master of Arts in teaching at Drew.
This comes amid a push to attract more people into the teaching profession.
“The new transfer agreement with Drew University offers an incredible opportunity for RVCC students who are tomorrow’s teachers to pursue both an undergraduate and graduate degree at a prestigious university,” RVCC President Michael McDonough said in a statement.
Drew is also offering substantial scholarships to its graduates to help them afford the cost of their education.
The agreement will allow students who earn an associate degree from RVCC to transfer into the Bachelor of Arts/Master of Arts in Teaching track at Drew.
