Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico (PUCPR) and Middlesex County College signed an agreement that allows students to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree at PUCPR.

The agreement establishes that the students of MCC with an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts have the opportunity to transfer to PUCPR and take the required courses in a corresponding program and receive a PUCPR University Bachelor’s Degree. It also establishes a structure that streamlines the process of recognition of credits for students transferring from MCC to PUCPR.

To ensure the transfer from MCC to PUCPR, the student must have graduated with an Associate Degree in liberal arts, and PUCPR validates the 66 credits. The participant chooses a baccalaureate program and continues as a third-year student.

“Pontifical is an excellent university with a wide range of quality academic programs in a beautiful location,” said Joann La Perla-Morales, president of MCC. “In addition, it provides students with a valuable cultural experience.”

Both PUCPR and Middlesex share a mission and vision that are student-focused.

An information session for MCC students will be held on Thursday, April 14 from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Brunswick Room of Crabiel Hall.
