MIDDLESEX COUNTY GRADUATES RECEIVE DIPLOMAS
FROM BERKELEY COLLEGE

Berkeley College honored the achievements of more than 2,200 graduates, including students from Middlesex County, NJ, during a virtual Commencement ceremony held on Friday, June 5, 2020.

“The opportunities that now stand before you are truly endless,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College. “Know that the future isn’t written for you – the future is written by you … Focus on whether you have done everything in your own power to really know your goals and act every single day to move toward them. Any day you have moved toward your goals, you are a success, and I challenge you to never, ever accept anything less than you deserve.”

While the 2020 Berkeley College graduating class continues to reflect high diversity in terms of ethnicity and age, the number of graduates who utilized online learning has increased. Nearly 90% of this year’s graduates took online courses during their Berkeley College experience, compared with 83% of last year’s graduating class. Among the graduates receiving Certificates, Associate’s, Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, more than 37% received them with honors.

More than 160 graduates were active military or veterans. Among these, more than 47% graduated with honors. Age-wise, more than 56% are age 25 and above, with the average age of an undergraduate just above 28 years.

The Berkeley College Class of 2020 will join a network of more than 60,000 Berkeley College alumni eligible to receive lifetime career assistance.
