Camden County College and Fairleigh Dickinson University Establish New Partnership

Last Edited:
BLACKWOOD, N.J. -

At a signing last week, Camden County College announced an expanded partnership with Fairleigh Dickinson University, which provides two degree completion programs for students. 

Starting in Fall 2019, students can earn a bachelor’s of arts degree in Individualized Studies in Homeland Security at the Camden County College Regional Emergency Training Center in Lakeland (Blackwood) or a bachelor’s of arts in Sports Administration at the Blackwood campus in Gloucester Township.

“Camden County College prides itself in offering viable transfer options for our students from a variety of higher education institutions. This agreement adds to our popular Scholars Agreement with Fairleigh Dickinson University, which provides a 40-percent tuition discount for CCC transfer students,” stated Dr. David Edwards, Vice President for Academic Affairs. “When degree program partnerships grow and expand like this, it reinforces our mission as a community college.”

“FDU is proud to partner with Camden County College and extend our programs in Homeland Security and Sports Administration to more deserving students in New Jersey,” said Anthony Mastropietro, Director Community College Partnership at FDU. “Providing an affordable education is critical today and we know many CCC students will take advantage of this opportunity to complete their academic goals.”

One benefit of this new partnership is that Fairleigh Dickinson University will accept Police Academy credits towards the bachelor’s degree in Homeland Security. The partnership also provides Camden County College students another pathway to seamlessly transfer to Fairleigh Dickinson University, providing flexibility of class scheduling and affordability to obtain a bachelor’s degree.

Camden County College is one of the largest, most comprehensive community colleges in New Jersey and the surrounding region and is a vital resource for transfer education, workforce training, and cultural events. CCC’s three distinct locations in Blackwood, Camden and Cherry Hill – along with its satellite locations in Lakeland, Sicklerville and elsewhere throughout the County – share the common mission of providing accessible, affordable higher education and occupational study to all who can benefit.

The College also is recognized nationally as a leader in technology programs such as video game design/development and photonics. In addition, it is acknowledged for maintaining low tuition rates for many years. Perhaps most importantly, CCC is known for responding to the changing needs of the communities and students it serves by continuously updating its programs and services to support the economic development in this area and the professional and personal development of residents.

This signing is one of six similar signings between CCC and four-year schools in just the past year.
