Community College of Philadelphia has two types of transfer agreements with Harrisburg University of Science and Technology: dual admissions and program-to-program. To benefit from any of these agreements students must earn an appropriate associate degree before transfer. These agreements are not exclusive of one another and the agreements can complement one another.

Dual Admissions

Harrisburg University and Community College of Philadelphia have developed a dual admissions agreement. This agreement is designed to assist students who earn an appropriate associate degree to transfer to Harrisburg University. Harrisburg University guarantees admissions on the condition that students meet all the requirements.

Admissions into a particular major is not guaranteed. Upon transfer, students earn junior standing for matching majors. Support and financial incentives, including scholarship awards, are built-in to offer students the best opportunity for success.

Dual Admissions Eligibility

Students who do not qualify for dual admissions, are still eligible to transfer to Harrisburg University. Please review the list of approved programs below and visit with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor for further assistance.

Program-to-Program

These are agreements in which an entire curriculum or program of study is accepted, so graduates of these specific associate degree programs transfer with advanced standing to a matching specific bachelor's degree program at Harrisburg University.

Dual Admissions Eligibility

Once a student has completed this form, he or she is strongly encouraged to contact a Harrisburg University admissions representative and meet with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor to develop a course-taking strategy.
  • Complete the Harrisburg University admissions application and appropriate admissions materials upon completion of 45 credits or during the last semester at Community College of Philadelphia.
  • Graduate from Community College of Philadelphia with an Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) or Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in one of the approved programs listed.
