BCC and MCVTS Start Green Pathways Dual Credit Course
Burlington County College (BCC) has forged a Green Pathways Dual Credit Agreement with Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools (MCVTS) to meet the growing demand for green degree programs and the need for skilled workers in this industry. Under the agreement, MCVTS students that enroll in the Principles of Sustainability course during the fall 2014 semester at their high schools will have the opportunity to earn dual credit for SST 100 Principles of Sustainability, a required course in the BCC alternative energy technologies, energy management and sustainability associate degree programs. Students must receive a grade of C or better in their high school course to receive three college credits from BCC.
The Green Pathways program relies on a partnership with The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, which provides professional training to high school teachers that want to learn how to implement introductory sustainability courses in their schools. Through the Green Pathways program, high schools that offer an appropriate sustainability course will be able to establish dual credit agreements with either, or both, BCC and Stockton College.
Tuition: $150. For more information, visit bcc.edu/green. MCVTS students that want to enroll in the Green Pathways Dual Credit program should contact their guidance counselor and/or Green Program of Study instructor.
