MCCC President Dr. Jianping Wang and USciences President Dr. Paul Katz speak following the signing of a guranteed transfer agreement between the two institutions.

WEST WINDSOR – Mercer County Community College (MCCC) students pursuing a career in math, engineering, or the sciences can now transfer to University of the Sciences in Philadelphia (USciences) with full junior status under a new guaranteed transfer agreement signed by the two institutions Oct. 20.

“University of the Sciences is pleased to provide students from Mercer County Community College a pathway to continuing their educational pursuits,” said USciences President Dr. Paul Katz. “The agreement with MCCC outlines a seamless transition to a USciences major and ultimately, a rewarding career in the sciences.”

Under the agreement, MCCC students majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering Science, or Mathematics are eligible. USciences offers 13 degree programs under those disciplines. In addition, MCCC Business Administration majors will have the opportunity to transfer into the USciences bachelor’s degree program in Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Business.

Students must meet GPA requirements that vary for individual majors, as well as grade standards for certain courses. Qualifying students will have the opportunity to transfer up to 90 credits to USciences, with full junior status.

“Students choosing careers in these challenging STEM disciplines deserve every opportunity to succeed, and this agreement with USciences provides a clear academic path leading to rewarding careers,” said MCCC President Dr. Jianping Wang. “We welcome USciences as a partner in our efforts to ensure student success”

University of the Sciences has prepared students to be leaders and practitioners in the healthcare and science fields for nearly 200 years. Since its founding in 1821 as Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, USciences has grown to more than 30 degree-granting programs from bachelor’s through doctoral degrees in the health sciences, bench sciences, and healthcare business and policy fields.

Established in 1966, Mercer County Community College (MCCC) is a publicly supported comprehensive educational institution that provides opportunities for higher education through an open-door admission policy. With campuses in West Windsor and Trenton, MCCC offers more than 100 certificate and degree programs, with approximately 11,300 students enrolling each year.
