I am trying to find out what the best community colleges are in the area to eventually transfer to either Rutgers University or Kean University. I got some info in another thread that Union County's community college has a good transfer program with Rutgers and most if not all the credits transfer. I ASSUME they will have a similar program with Kean figuring it is located in the county. Essex county also had a nice page on thier website that they transfer to them both. What about the rest of the counties(Hudson, Bergen, etc.) do they have similar or better programs? How good are those schools as well as the ones I named? Is it easy to transfer the credits? I am looking for any info or places where I can get info from. Thanks.

Similar programs - be upfront with the counselor that you intend to transfer, there is work to be done, and not telling them right away cna be problematic.

Kean credits will not transfer to many other colleges, so be wary of going there after you get your associates if you think you may end up elsewhere.

Depends on your major- some schools accept full transfers in certain majors and not in others. I attended Middlesex County College and had a full transfer into NJIT's construction management program. Despite everyone calling MCC "Harvard on the Highway" and "13th & 14th grades" when I was in high school, the classes were very challenging- I feel I worked harder and learned more there than I did at NJIT.

I couldn't agree more with your post. Before starting and even while attending MCC, I heard so many ignorant comments about the place. I thrived there and transferred all of my credits to Kean upon graduation.

I highly recommend Middlesex County College.

My major will be Meteorology so I know most community schools don't have that as an exact program, but if I can get basic classes out of the way and some classes required for my major I would be happy. Middlesex County is where New Brunswick is located right? About how far is it from NYC? and is there good transportation to the campus?
