Brookdale Community College and Georgian Court University signed a 3+1 articulation agreement enabling Brookdale graduates to take up to an additional 30 credits at Brookdale and apply them to a Georgian Court bachelor’s degree.

“Georgian Court University has been a trusted partner with Brookdale for many years, and this new chapter in our relationship will enable more students to begin their careers with less debt and to continue their studies at convenient locations,” said Dr. David Stout, president of Brookdale. “It is an excellent fit with our mission to provide high-quality and affordable educational pathways.”

This new agreement, signed at the November 19 meeting of the Brookdale Board of Trustees, allows Brookdale students to save money when transferring to Georgian Court as the additional 30 credits after achieving their associate’s degree will be priced at Brookdale tuition and fee levels. Most of these post-associate’s degree courses will be taught at Brookdale’s Hazlet location which is home to the Brookdale and Georgian Court partnership.

“This means students can stay at Brookdale for a third year to begin their bachelor’s studies, then transfer either to Georgian Court University’s Lakewood campus or our Hazlet location for a fourth year to complete their degree,” said Dr. Joseph R. Marbach, president of Georgian Court University. “College students today are looking for affordable options that are accessible and flexible,” he said.
