Burlington County College (BCC) is a comprehensive two-year community college in New Jersey. Established in 1966, it continues to develop programs and degrees to meet the needs of its nearby communities and members of the local workforce, providing students with the opportunity to earn associate degrees and certificates.

Many of the college credits earned at BCC can be transferred to a four-year college or university, and in some tracks students will be able to enter the workforce with the knowledge and skills to succeed in a career.


The school offers numerous associate degrees, which can prepare students for four-year colleges and universities as well as entry-level positions in the workforce. Degrees offered include Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), and Associate of Applied Science (AAS). The college also offers career development programs, certifications, a variety of enrichment programs, distance learning, adult education classes, the opportunity to study abroad, and the chance to enroll in a co-op where students obtain jobs in their area of study and receive training and wages.

The credits earned as part of the Associate of Applied Science degree are generally not able to transfer. Sometimes an exception can be made, so be sure to check with the four-year college or university you plan on attending to see if they will transfer over those credits.

Unique to the school is BCC’s partnership with six area colleges and universities to offer BCC students the chance to earn a bachelor’s degree from those institutions while remaining on a BCC campus. The Bachelor’s Degree Completion Program is a cooperative with the following area institutions: Drexel University, Peirce College, Rider University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Strayer University, and Wilmington University.
