JERSEY CITY, N.J. / July 17, 2013 — Officials from Hudson County Community College (HCCC) and New Jersey City University (NJCU) gathered at the HCCC Culinary Conference Center this afternoon to sign a unique agreement called, “Reverse Transfer Articulation Agreement.”

Members of the HCCC and NJCU administration, faculty and staff looked on as HCCC President Dr. Glen Gabert and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Eric Friedman, as well as NJCU President Dr. Sue Henderson and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Joanne Bruno inked the agreement.

Under the terms of the agreement, New Jersey City University students who earned at least 30 credits towards associate degrees while enrolled at Hudson County Community College, but did not complete enough credits to earn associate degrees, may transfer credits earned at NJCU to HCCC to complete the requirements for their associate degrees. In order for NJCU students to take advantage of the “Reverse Transfer Articulation Agreement” they must be in good standing and have earned at least 15 semester hours at NJCU, and have left HCCC in good standing.

“This agreement will provide students with the opportunity to add a credential to their résumés while they are pursuing their bachelor’s degrees, and that can very much improve their employment prospects,” said Dr. Gabert. He noted that Hudson County Community College and New Jersey City University share a historic partnership, one that has been important in contributing to the success of many students.
