Community College of Philadelphia has three types of transfer agreements with Chestnut Hill College’s School of Undergraduate Studies (traditional day) and School of Continuing and Professional Studies (evening/accelerated): dual admissions, core-to-core 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

Chestnut Hill College 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 Chestnut Hill College. Chestnut Hill College 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 Chestnut Hill College. Please review the list of approved programs below and visit with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor for further assistance.

Core-to-Core

Chestnut Hill College and Community College of Philadelphia have a core-to-core agreement. In this, Chestnut Hill College agrees to accept the General Education embedded in Community College of Philadelphia’s A.A., A.S., and approved A.A.S. degrees as meeting all the requirements of its undergraduate General Education requirements, except for nine credits (six in religious studies and three in a global seminar). Students may complete the required religious studies courses at Community College of Philadelphia, one of these courses should be RS 151/PHIL 151, World Religions. Students who plan to attend the School of Undergraduate Studies are encouraged to also complete PHIL 211 Ethical Problems at Community College of Philadelphia.

This core-to-core agreement applies to all A.A., A.S., and approved A.A.S. degrees and is not limited to students who participate in dual admissions. Core-to-core transfer does not alter the requirements of the student's major field of study.

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 Chestnut Hill College.
