Selective Admissions

Selective Admissions

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to Selective Admissions at Rowan College South Jersey, Gloucester Campus!

Selective Admission programs at RCSJ Gloucester require applicants to meet or exceed admissions criteria beyond requirements for general admission to the College​. Students interested in applying to a Selective Admission program must complete a portfolio, detailed in the program admissions packet, to formally apply to their program of interest.

RCSJ Gloucester offers seven selective admissions programs:

 
Admission to each program is competitive. Meeting or exceeding admissions requirements does not guarantee acceptance to the program of interest. It is the applicant's responsibility to meet the general and selective admission requirements for their program of interest. Applicants must be certain they obtain the selective admission packet of information for the year they wish to apply.​

On July 1, 2019 the former Cumberland County College and Rowan College of Gloucester County, merged to become Rowan College of South Jersey. Due to the merger, the New Jersey Board of Nursing has required the two programs to join and create one unified curriculum.

The Board of Nursing approved the new curriculum in fall of 2020, with the first cohort admitted in fall 2021. The curriculum is delivered on both the Cumberland and Gloucester campuses. ​
