The Center has a staff of Professional Counselors who offer a wide variety of services for students.
Academic Counselors assist students in selecting programs of study that are appropriate for their personal and professional goals based on factors such as academic status and history, professional goals, and educational backgrounds. Counseling is provided in the areas of study skills, time management, and test taking. Specific counselors are designated for the following cohorts: Honors, NJ Stars, STEM, HPOG, and First Year Experience.
Transfer Counselors assist students by providing information about the transferability of courses taken at Bergen, articulation agreements with four-year colleges, and the transfer process. In addition, they lead Transfer Workshops, organize College Fairs, and provide transfer resources for the students. Students are advised to attend a Transfer Information Session early in their academic career. These sessions are offered twice a week each semester and deal with the basics of choosing courses and how courses will transfer to other institutions. Transfer information and resources are available to students both online and at the Center. Also available are guidelines for specific majors detailing course and GPA requirements for direct transfer to the same major at another institution. Applications and course catalogs for other colleges are available on their Web sites. For current facts regarding transfer in New Jersey, and links to all the colleges and universities in the state, visit www.njtransfer.org.
All information about Transfer and BCCs Articulation Agreements are available online at http://www.bergen.edu/transfer.
