Pillar College is now offering courses in Paterson, NJ

Pillar College, through an arrangement with Passaic County Community College, now offers a Middle States-accredited bachelor degree program in Paterson, NJ.

The program, recently launched at the Community Technology Center of Passaic County Community College (PCCC), is an adult education accelerated degree program for students who have completed approximately 48 semester hours from an accredited institution and, therefore, does not compete with other programs conducted by PCCC. Through a mutual agreement, students graduating from PCCC can transfer all of their credits to Pillar College and complete their baccalaureate in one of three majors right in the city of Paterson. Students attend class one night per week and many complete their degree in two years.

On hand to mark this historic event were Jeff Jones, mayor of Paterson; Chris Irving, president of the Paterson Board of Education; Dr. Alfred Ottley, Pillar College’s vice president of academic affairs; Dan Wright, Pillar’s executive vice president; Rev. Michael McDuffie, Paterson Pastor’s Workshop/Clergy on Fire; Josue Cruz, Pillar College Student Government Association; and Dominic DiGioacchino, Pillar’s assistant director of admission. All offered greetings and words of congratulations to the students for the Class of 2015.

Pillar College main campus is located in Newark and an extension site is in Somerset. According to Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dean of the program, a new cohort is targeted to begin in Paterson on February 6.
