Georgian Court University and Atlantic Cape Community College have signed a dual admissions and guaranteed admissions agreement that will provide a range of benefits to students who want to transition from community college to a private, four-year institution.

The agreement, which is effective Fall 2018, offers a seamless transition for Atlantic Cape students after they earn their associate degree. They will also benefit from special advising, generous transfer credits, and eligibility for expanded scholarships that will put Atlantic Cape graduates that much closer to earning a bachelor’s degree.


Amy Iversen, senior adjunct instructor of Arts and Humanities, had an article published in a high-end jewelry magazine, Belle Armoire Jewelry, this winter. Iversen was also juried in as a Master Artisan with the PA Guild of Craftsmen this past year.

It will also provide examples of the benefits of designing accessible products and showcase mainstream innovation that inclusive design has led to.
