Westchester Community College students can transfer to Mercy College, earning both an associate's and bachelor's degree in four years' time, now that the institutions signed a dual admissions agreement.
Beginning in the spring semester of 2021, students will apply simultaneously to both undergraduate programs, earning an associate's degree in two years from Westchester Community College before being accepted at Mercy College with junior status and completing two years there for an accelerated degree.
“This is an exciting partnership between two institutions to serve students and prepare them to be future leaders in the communities they serve,” said Mercy College President Tim Hall. “This partnership will provide WCC students a seamless pathway to the next level of their educational journey and receive a four-year degree at Mercy College.”
Westchester Community College has forged such agreements with nearly twenty institutions, and about 120 students from Westchester Community College students already transfer to Mercy College per year.
“Westchester Community College provides accessible, high quality and affordable education to meet the diverse needs of our community,” said Dr. Belinda S. Miles, President of Westchester Community College. “Our commitment to student success extends beyond their graduation.
"WCC provides students with a foundation of critical thinking and career-oriented skills that students build upon to achieve their goals. This agreement with Mercy College provides our students with a pathway to continue their studies at a high-quality four-year institution while staying in Westchester County.”
