Grade point average and standardized test scores do not always provide a complete or accurate measurement of a student's potential for success. Morgan State University (MSU) and the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) are aware that while standard assessment tools are strong indicators of academic potential, test scores are not always indicative of a student's ability to successfully earn a degree.

NEXUS provides an alternative for students with drive and potential by providing access to two outstanding schools. Resources, strong academics, and solid support systems from both institutions along with YOUR determination will ensure YOUR opportunity to meet and exceed the University's admission requirements. The NEXUS PROGRAM (Network for Excellence and Undergraduate Success) ensures that all students are provided with access to a quality college education.

Nexus program participants, while officially CCBC students, begin their academic journey on Morgan State University grounds, and once transferred* will remain on the MSU campus. The word "NEXUS" means center, connection, core, link, network, tie, union, bond. Being a NEXUS student denotes that two schools have bonded to provide a network of services and opportunities from which each participant SHALL benefit and SHALL succeed. Participation in the program is by exclusive invitation only.  Contact the Program Coordinator/Community College Liaison for more information at 443-885-3765 or e-mail
