When you Graduate
AFA programs are primarily designed for students who plan to transfer as juniors at four-year colleges and universities. CCC graduates have obtained bachelor's degrees and beyond from every college in New Jersey and scores of colleges and universities throughout America. Cumberland has transfer agreements with a number of four-year colleges and universities. As a graduate of a fully accredited community college, your coursework will be received with full credit transfer at most state colleges, public and private universities across the country. The NJ Lampitt bill passed in 2008 by the NJ State legislature assures seamless transfer of credits toward junior standing at NJ state colleges and universities.
