Transfer Information

Public Health, as an Associate in Science degree program, is designed for transfer and not to lead directly to employment.  The majority of our Public Health graduates will be pursuing positions in the Public Health field following their graduation from baccalaureate institutions.

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
