A Transfer Partnership

Upgrade Your Associate’s To A Bachelor’s With A Seamless Transition

When you imagine your life after Middlesex County College (MCC), which do you see: Jumping into the workforce? Or applying to bachelor’s programs? If you’re a top student, you have a third option: a seamless transition into Drew University through our Community College Connect dual admissions agreement.

Through the agreement, you also qualify for generous scholarship support to help meet your financial need.

If You’re the Best, We Want You Here!

If you have the skills and drive, we want to ensure you have the opportunity. That’s why we’re offering this program to students who meet the following requirements:

  • Graduate, in good standing, from MCC with Associate in Arts degree (AA) or Associate in Science degree (AS).
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00.
  • Follow the application process outlined on the back.

We’ll Help You Through The Process

Your credits will be seamlessly transferred from MCC to Drew. In addition, you can:

  • Register for one undergraduate course at Drew University (up to 4 credits) at the MCC tuition and fee rate.
  • Attend lectures, concerts, sports and other special campus events held at Drew.
  • Meet with Drew faculty and staff upon invitation for advisement and informational purposes.
  • Be considered for Drew’s comprehensive merit scholarship program for transfer students based on the final GPA at the time of graduation from MCC. This includes generous academic scholarships, specialty awards and a need-based university grant program. All merit scholarships are automatically renewable as long as you maintain the required GPA and remain in good standing while attending Drew.
  • Once admitted to Drew’s College of Liberal Arts, you are eligible to take graduate level courses at Drew’s Theological School and/or Caspersen School of Graduate Studies and apply the credit to your bachelor’s degree program.

If you will receive your associate’s degree in May:

  • Turn in your application to Drew by June 1 of your second year at MCC.

If you will receive your associate’s degree in December:

  • Turn in your application to Drew by January 1 of your second year at MCC.


Transfer applicants will be considered for one of three major scholarships at Drew: The Francis Asbury Scholarship, The Presidential Scholarship and The Dean’s Scholarship. A minimum GPA of 3.25 in a solid academic curriculum over at least two semesters is required for consideration. Annual scholarship amounts range from $5,000 to $20,000 and are renewable for up to two additional years at the initial amount awarded, assuming no major changes in college tuition charges and contingent on the maintenance of satisfactory academic progress.

In addition to these scholarships, transfer students from community colleges who are members of Phi Theta Kappa and who have obtained an associates degree are eligible for a PTK Scholarship of $1,500 per year.


Need-Based Financial Aid

Drew also offers need-based grants to domestic transfer students. To determine your eligibility for a need-based grant from Drew, as well as federal and state grants, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid available at fafsa.ed.gov. Drew’s FAFSA school code is 002603.

Students who demonstrate financial need will receive grants, loans and work-study to meet their demonstrated financial need, minus an expected student summer earnings contribution. (Academic scholarships are factored into need-based financial aid packages.)

Note: Drew’s application fee will be waived for students applying through this partnership.
