3+1 FAQs

A 3+1 program is a college term stating that three years of a typical four-year bachelor's degree are completed at a community college at the respective community college's tuition rate, while the senior year is completed at/through the 4-year university.

Our 3+1 program with Stockton University allows you to earn an Associate of Science and a Bachelor of Science in Advanced and Continuous Studies. Our program with TESU is open to all associate's degree programs, but you will need to speak with an academic advisor to determine the best academic path for you. At Rutgers University, RN's may earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Each degree is different, but classes may be taken online, in-person, remote or hybrid.

Your freshman, sophomore and junior years will be completed at Atlantic Cape, while your senior year will be completed at/through your 4-year university.

Each program requires a formal application through our One-Stop Welcome Center. If you are interested in applying, we encourage you to speak to your academic advisor first for the best guidance.
