Quote from the President

“Rowan College at Burlington County is transforming into a national model of higher education in the 21st century. Our partnership with Rowan University provides a guaranteed path to a bachelor’s degree that could cost as little as $30,000 over four years – less than one year’s tuition at many institutions – while creating a cohesive academic and student life experience between two outstanding institutions.”

Interesting Facts

  • The former Burlington County College rebranded itself as part of a partnership with Rowan University that provides guaranteed acceptance into the university with a path toward a bachelor’s degree that could cost students as little as $30,000 for all four years with discounts for university courses provided online and on RCBC’s Mount Laurel campus.
  • RCBC ranks among the top 3 percent of community colleges in the nation for its ability to increase graduates’ salary after graduation.
  • The college is one of a few community colleges in the nation to offer an undergraduate research program that has provided the opportunity for students to be published in national research journals. Most recently, a pair of students identified a new way to chemically analyze wine to determine its authenticity.
  • The college is transforming its most popular location in Mount Laurel from a satellite campus into the main campus to better serve students, faculty and staff.
  • The new Workforce Development Institute has combined all of the workforce development, programs and services in Burlington County to better serve employers, job seekers and students.
