Gloucester County College in New Jersey plans to change its name to more formally align itself with nearby Rowan University, and to create an "exclusive agreement" in which students who enroll in the two-year institution will sign a non-binding letter to enroll at the university and earn the right to enroll there if they maintain a 2.0 grade point average, South Jersey Times reported. If approved by state officials, the community college will become Rowan College of Gloucester County, and in addition to the transfer pathway, students at the county college who choose to remain there instead of transferring can take Rowan courses at a 15 percent discount.
