Two is better than one: New Jersey college, university team up

    A new idea has come to New Jersey, where some students will be encouraged to enroll in two higher education programs.

    CBS 3 reports Gloucester County College is teaming up with Rowan University to form a program where high school seniors can enroll in both schools at the same time.

    The program would allow a student to pursue a liberal studies degree, for example, at the County College, then move on to Rowan University once studies are completed, assuming that student maintains a passing average.

    CBS 3 reports the idea could end up shaving $20,000 off the four year cost of doing that separately.
