Community College Won't Let Four-Year Colleges Recruit

September 26, 2016

Rowan College at Burlington County, a New Jersey community college that is affiliated with Rowan University, has angered many other four-year colleges by saying that they may no longer hold transfer fairs or recruitment events at the college, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Rowan College officials said that they are now promoting a 3+1 program in which their students can complete three of the four years of a bachelor's degree on their campus, and then finish a bachelor's degree in one year at Rowan University. Rowan officials said that they are now competing with other institutions for the third year and so don't want them recruiting on campus. Officials of a number of four-year universities in the area are criticizing the new policy, saying that Rowan College at Burlington County students should be able to easily learn about a range of options open to them.
