Degree Completion Program

The Degree Completion Program (DCP) at Ramapo College of NJ provides pathways for adult students to finish their undergraduate degrees in a format that recognizes the complexities of their lives and acknowledges the increasing necessity of post-secondary credentialing. By offering curricular, administrative, and academic support services designed specifically for working professionals, the Degree Completion Program’s primary goal is to respond to the continually developing needs of this distinct student population.   As an advocate for returning students, the Degree Completion Program aims to increase the number of adults earning an undergraduate degree at Ramapo and, by extension, to improve access to higher education in northern New Jersey.  Consistent with the mission of Ramapo College, these completion programs for returning adult students are rooted in a commitment to academic excellence and the value of a liberal arts education as a vehicle for a lifetime of achievement.
