Rutgers University Joint Degree Programs

Rutgers University and Sussex County Community College have developed several Joint programs. This program allows students to attend SCCC and earn college credits entering one of these programs.  These programs are offered jointly with Rutgers School of Health Related Professions (SHRP). Students must apply to the Rutgers School of Health Related Professions for admission into the core courses.

Acceptance into the professional phase of the program is highly competitive and does not guarantee entrance into the program. Please review the Course Sequencing for the minimum cumulative G.P.A. and the minimum number of credits needed to be taken at SCCC under each program.
