East Stroudsburg University Transfer Partnership



Transfer Partnership with East Stroudsburg University offers NCC program grads the best of all worlds

Thanks to a new partnership with East Stroudsburg University, all AA and AS NCC graduates are guaranteed admission to ESU with significant scholarships offered, up to $6,000 a year. 

ESU is already the top college transfer destination for NCC students, with more than 300 graduates each year enrolling at ESU. What makes this partnership even more compelling is that NCC students thrive once they arrive at ESU. Students who earn a two-year degree at NCC before attending ESU, graduate at a higher rate than other ESU students and they graduate more quickly than their peers who did not attend NCC!
