Rider University and Middlesex County College signed a guaranteed transfer agreement to reaffirm their original 1999 agreement and expand students’ abilities to earn Bachelor’s Degrees.

Additionally, 32 program-to-program agreements, ranging from education to science to business, were also signed. Symbolically, the transfer agreement for Rider’s new Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in Business Analytics was signed during the ceremony held at the Corral in the College Center.


After the signing ceremony, Rider officials visited West Hall, MCC’s new enrollment center, and South Hall, the science building.

“We are always pleased to provide prospective students with alternative means to achieve their educational goals,” said Rider President Gregory G. Dell’Omo. “These transfer agreements represent clear pathways for MCC students who wish to pursue their Bachelor’s Degrees at Rider.”

Dr. Dell’Omo was joined by Rider’s Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs DonnaJean A. Fredeen; MCC President Joann La Perla-Morales; and MCC Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Mark McCormick.

“We are pleased to be signing this agreement with Rider University,” said Dr. La Perla-Morales. “This collaboration will provide Middlesex County College graduates with the opportunity to transfer seamlessly to more than 30 programs at Rider University. We thank Rider University for its vision to provide opportunity for our graduates.”
