CCM Leads State Community Colleges in Student Transfer Rate

The County College of Morris (CCM) leads the state in having the highest percentage of students transfer from the school to continue their education according to data released by the U.S. Department of Education last week.

The data also revealed CCM to have a lower cost when compared to other national community colleges.

The school's transfer rate was 6 percent higher than the college with the second-best rate, according to a press release sent by the school. The cost to attend CCM, about $5,195, was sixth lowest of 19 schools and about $900 less than the average community college's tuition.

“CCM’s scorecard numbers and impressive rank among other New Jersey community colleges are products of the dedicated and talented faculty who serve our students,” Dr. Edward J. Yaw, president of CCM, said. “As leading experts in their fields, they provide an outstanding education that is also affordable.”
