Three Types of Agreements
Dual Admissions, Core-to-Core, Program-to-Program
To participate in dual admissions, core-to-core and program-to-program agreements, students must earn an appropriate associate's degree before transfer. These agreements are not exclusive of one another. If a student transfers to a school with which there exists all three or two of the three types of agreements, the agreements can complement one another.
A partnership to promote student-friendly, seamless transition to the transfer institution. This type of partnership guarantees admission and acceptance of credits at the four-year institution. Students commit to these programs before entering or early in their community college careers. The programs often include financial incentives. Below is a list of four-year institutions with which Community College of Philadelphia has dual admissions agreements.
Chestnut Hill College
Drexel University Blue-Gold Connection
Holy Family University
La Salle University
Rosemont College, Undergraduate College
Saint Joseph’s, College of Professional and Liberal Studies
The acceptance of approved associate's degree programs in which the general education reflects the core requirements of the four-year institution's curriculum. If a student earns an appropriate associate's degree (usually an A.A. or A.S.), the four-year institution's core requirements are satisfied except for core courses required by the intended major and possibly for other requirements that reflect the specific values of the transfer institution (e.g., religion, foreign language). Below is a list of four-year institutions with which Community College of Philadelphia has core-to-core agreements. To access information about each college or university agreement, click on the school name.
An agreement in which an entire curriculum or program of study is accepted to provide a graduate of a specific associate's degree advanced standing in a specific bachelor degree program.
Statewide Transfer System
A Statewide Transfer System exists which is dedicated to the seamless transfer of courses within a 30-credit framework. In addition, the Statewide Transfer System has been expanded to require participating institutions to accept the transfer of Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) degrees into parallel baccalaureate programs with full junior standing, recognizing all the competencies attained within the associate degree programs. CCP associate degree programs currently part of the Statewide Transfer System are:
- AA in Business Administration
- AA in Psychology
- AS in Computer Science
- AS in Mathematics
Not all participating colleges and universities offer all majors.
Students are encouraged to visit www.pacollegetransfer.net to explore transfer opportunities with institutions that participate in the Statewide Transfer System and to view CCP courses that are part of the 30 credit framework mentioned above. Courses from the 30 credit framework are recommended to be integrated into a student's degree program at CCP.
