Articulation Agreement with Mercer County Community College

The partnership between USciences and Mercer County Community College (MCCC) leverages the strengths of each institution—opening up a broad range of educational and career opportunities.

Our agreement with MCCC features 13 transfer advising guides, providing you with seamless paths from six associate degrees at MCCC into 14 USciences programs.

You’ll benefit from:

  • Guaranteed admission with junior status—reducing your time to degree
  • Special tuition pricing
  • Assistance from USciences faculty and staff in transferring
  • Merit scholarships (with a 3.0 GPA or higher)
  • Phi Theta Kappa scholarships (with a 3.5 GPA or higher)
  • Application fee waiver

Requirements:

  • You must complete the courses in your associate’s degree from MCCC within three years immediately preceding matriculation to USciences; students taking more than three years can still transfer under this agreement pending USciences departmental approval.
  • You can transfer a maximum of 90 credits to USciences.
  • You must achieve the minimum cumulative GPA required for admission into a specific USciences BS program.
  • You must earn a minimum grade of C to transfer a course to USciences; a minimum grade of B for specific core courses may be required for admission into specific USciences BS programs.
