WALL TOWNSHIP — Opportunities for students, both academic and socially, are expanding rapidly at the Wall campus of Brookdale Community College.

Students now can earn full bachelor’s degrees at the Wall campus via its partnership with New Jersey City University [NJCU] in Jersey City.

“We just received our approval from Middle States [Commission on Higher Education] to offer a full degree program here in Wall,” said Wall campus director Allison Fitzpatrick. “So, students can do their associate’s degree here and walk across the courtyard and get a bachelor’s degree from NJCU in certain programs.”

“Together with the high school program, it really has expanded Brookdale’s presence across the county,” Ms. Fitzpatrick said. In the Early College High School program, Monmouth County high school students may earn a high school diploma and an associate’s degree in four years by concurrently completing coursework offered by Brookdale and their high school.
