Atlantic Cape Community College and Rutgers University – Camden signed a conditional admission agreement March 27 that will enable students from Atlantic or Cape May counties to earn their associate degrees at Atlantic Cape and then seamlessly transition to Rutgers Camden to complete their undergraduate education.
