On July 1, 2014, Gloucester County College entered a premier partnership with Rowan University and changed its name to Rowan College of South Jersey (RCSJ). The goal of this partnership is to make higher education more affordable for South Jersey students by providing a direct, cohesive route to a bachelor's degree with easy transfer of credits.
From their very first day of classes, RCSJ students are conditionally admitted to Rowan University with the understanding that all program prerequisite coursework and GPA requirements must be satisfied. Students pay the community-college tuition and fee rates for their freshman and sophomore years of college, saving them substantial time and money. Visit
