August 30, 2012 — Gloucester County College Grows

On August 21, Gloucester County College cut the ribbon on its new 24,000-sq.-ft. University Center, which was built to accommodate a larger student body and five dual-enrollment agreements with Rowan University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Rutgers University-Camden, Wilmington University, and the University of Maryland University College. By day, the 18 “smart” classroom facility will be used for traditional college classes. And by night, the $6.5 million center will be used for certificate programs and for its partnered four-year universities, which will now offer BA, MAS and MSN programs on location. “GCC has the lowest tuition and the highest graduation rate in New Jersey. Now our students can also receive a four-year or master’s degree at the lowest possible cost,” said Gloucester Freeholder Director Robert Damminger. This year’s fall enrollment at GCC is expected to exceed 7,000 students, compared to last year’s 6,829.
