Transfer Agreements

Community College of Philadelphia has transfer agreements with many four-year colleges in the region and beyond. By earning an associate's degree here on your path to a bachelor's degree, you can save thousands of dollars in tuition and take full advantage of our transfer and dual admissions agreements to build a better future. It is possible to transfer before you earn your associate's degree here, but research shows that degree holders perform better after transfer than students without a degree. The success these students enjoy is a reflection of the transfer curricula and related support offered at the College.

There are three types of transfer agreements: dual admissions, core-to-core and program-to-program. To participate in these agreements, you must earn your associate's degree in an appropriate program before you transfer. You do not have to limit yourself to one of the agreements, if you transfer to a college that offers more than one type of agreement, the agreements can complement one another.

Dual Admissions

Community College of Philadelphia has developed dual admissions transfer partnerships with area colleges and universities. These partnerships are designed to help students seamlessly transfer to these colleges with junior standing after completing an associate's degree here. Support and financial incentives, including scholarship opportunities, are built in to give you the best opportunity for success.

If you are interested in dual admissions you should complete an intent form early in your academic career. Many of our dual admissions partners require that students complete an intent form at the time they complete 30 college-level credits. You should meet with a counselor or academic advisor for assistance in identifying the appropriate courses at the College in order to transfer into your program of choice. Visit our dual admissions transfer partnership page for a complete list of participating colleges and universities.

Core-to-Core

With these agreements, the approved associate's degree programs are accepted because the general education requirements meet the core requirements of the transfer college's curriculum. If you earn an appropriate associate's degree, usually an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science, the core requirements of the transfer college are satisfied except for the core courses required by the intended major (and in some cases the requirements that reflect the specific values of the transfer college, for example, religion or foreign language courses). The College has core-to-core agreements with the following:

Program-to-Program

These are agreements in which an entire curriculum or program of study is accepted, so graduates of these specific associate's degree programs transfer with advanced standing in a specific bachelor's degree program at the transfer college. For information on specific agreements, use the table below to locate academic programs and colleges of interest.

Visit www.pacollegetransfer.net to explore transfer opportunities with institutions that participate in the Statewide Transfer System, and to view the 30-credit course framework Community College of Philadelphia recommended to be integrated into students' degree programs during their time here.

The Academic Passport, a policy of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), guarantees admission to any of the 14 PASSHE universities to a student with an earned AA or AS degree from a Pennsylvania public community college. A university can stipulate that the associate's degree contain at least 30 credits of liberal arts courses. The Academic Passport does not guarantee admission to specific majors.
