New 16 Month Fast Track Associate Degree Programs

Article Posted -- February 17, 2014

Sussex County Community College has introduced two Fast Track 16 Month Degree Programs leading to associate degrees in Liberal Arts and Business Administration. SCCC is believed to be the only community college in New Jersey to offer such programs.

In commenting on the new programs, SCCC Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs, William Waite said, “We developed these two degree programs to respond to a need in the community for adult learners who want to add a degree to their resume credentials in the shortest time possible and for motivated students looking to accelerate their degree attainment or transfer sooner into a four-year institution. We have also observed a growing trend towards three-year bachelor’s degrees and this allows students to begin this shorter degree path here at SCCC and then transfer to an institution that offers a three-year bachelor’s degree program. Of course, this type of accelerated program demands a serious commitment to scholarship and isn’t for every student, but for highly motivated learners it offers an attractive alternative to the traditional two year path to an associate degree.”
