First students to complete RCBC's and Rowan University's 3+1 program are recognized

Among the first students to complete Rowan University’s and RCBC’s 3+1 program are Hayley Brunetta, Emily Schurr, Kayla Cardis, Christina Millier, Wiley Mitchell, Daniel Duba, and Alex Velazquez.

On Tuesday, Dec. 18, Rowan University and Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) celebrated the first students to complete the 3+1 program, a groundbreaking college affordability program that will collectively save students $3.3 million by this May. The program allows students to complete three years of a Rowan University bachelor’s degree with RCBC.

RCBC became the first community college in the region to offer junior-year courses in January 2017. Today, there are more than 1,000 students committed a 3+1 program, which is currently offered in seven different majors: biology, nursing, psychology, liberal studies, computing and informatics, law and justice, and inclusive education.

The celebration of the 3+1 students, who have completed their final Rowan University bachelor’s degree requirements in biology, law and justice, psychology, and liberal arts this December, was held in RCBC’s Student Success Center. The students will be included in Rowan University’s commencement activities in May.
