Students Can Earn Rutgers Degrees at Brookdale

Lincroft Campus LAH Rutgers Brookdale

This fall, area students will be able to earn Rutgers University bachelor’s degrees at Brookdale Community College’s flagship campus in Lincroft as part of an expanded Brookdale-Rutgers University Partnership.

The collaboration with Brookdale, the first of its kind in New Jersey, has allowed the State University of New Jersey to increase access and reduce the cost of higher education for Monmouth County residents.

The partnership, first established in 1998 at Brookdale’s Freehold campus, allows students to earn a Brookdale associate degree and transfer seamlessly into a Rutgers degree program, completing all coursework at one Monmouth County location. Students also have access to a variety of university resources, including registration, financial aid, and career search assistance.

The program, which currently serves up to 400 area students each semester, will move this September to larger offices in Brookdale’s Larrison Hall, located on the Lincroft campus.

Nine full bachelor’s degree completion programs, including business administration, criminal justice, journalism, labor and employment relations, liberal studies, political science, psychology, public health and social work, will be offered exclusively in Lincroft.
