Rutgers at PCCC

---


On the afternoon of Thursday Feb 17, Rutgers representative Vincent Tepedino was stationed outside of the PCCC library. Sitting with a bright red display of the school- I was immediately drawn to his table.


It had been a long time since Tepedino been on campus- he stated, “I have not been here since 2019”, and his immediate observation was “there were much fewer students on campus” considering the effects of the pandemic that struck merely 2 years ago.


Amidst the change going on in the world, Rutgers remains determined to recruit new faces that will add to their community. Tepedino emphasizes that PCCC alumni bring a “significant diversity background” that keeps a well-rounded institution. He emphasizes that the students from PCCC have a “preparedness” like he has never seen, and he notices they have a “ready to work attitude”. It is safe to say that the community at PCCC is well equipped once ready to transfer to a 4-year university.


Tepedino spoke about the transfer process for PCCC students interested in going to Rutgers. Tepedino assures that about 95-100% of credits are transferrable, including lab hours that apply to your field work. The most popular programs of transfers included but are not limited to: Accounting, Social Work, and Biology.
