American Honors Brings Top 4 Year Universities and Colleges to Discuss Transfer Opportunities with New Jersey Students

WASHINGTON, DC, October 23, 2014 –Tomorrow, at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) in West Windsor, N.J., current American Honors students at MCCC and Union County College will meet with representatives from top four-year colleges and universities to explore the opportunity to transfer seamlessly and complete their bachelor degree.

This college transfer network event is brought to campus by the American Honors program, which enables Mercer County Community College and Union County College students to save as much as 30 to 40% in tuition by completing their associate degree with honors at their respective college and then transferring to a top four-year university like the over 40 colleges and universities that participate in the American Honors Transfer Network.

Tomorrow, 13 universities and colleges from the American Honors Transfer Network will participate in the Open House, and will meet one-on-one with American Honors students. The schools attending the event include Baldwin Wallace University, Connecticut College, Duke University, George Mason University, Georgetown University, Illinois Institute of Technology, Middlebury College, Rowan University, Shimer College, Stockton College, University of Arizona, Valparaiso University, and Wabash College.

“We look forward to meeting students this week, as we know the American Honors program attracts a diverse group of highly motivated students who are great candidates for admission at Georgetown University’s Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program,” said Vincent Kiernan, associate dean at Georgetown. “We are pleased to be part of the American Honors National Transfer Network, as it reflects our commitment to serving well-qualified students who might not otherwise have a chance to pursue a top degree, whether online or in person.”

“Duke University is committed to creating multiple pathways for students, and we believe community colleges are a great way for students to access a high-quality education at an affordable cost,” said Solomon K. Enos, Senior Assistant Director of Admissions at Duke University. “American Honors is taking an innovative approach to connecting leading community colleges and top tier universities who share the same vision for ensuring that all students have a chance to succeed.”
