Community College of Philadelphia has two types of transfer agreements with Drexel University: 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.
Drexel 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 Drexel University. Drexel 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.
Students who do not qualify for dual admissions, are still eligible to transfer to Temple University. Please review the list of approved programs below and visit with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor for further assistance.
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 Drexel University.
Community College of Philadelphia has a program-to-program transfer agreement with Drexel University Online which awards all Nursing graduates a 25 percent tuition discount to the RN to BSN undergraduate online graduate program.

To be eligible for this program, students must:
- Submit a dual admissions intent form before earning no more than 45 graded college level credits (grades of A, B, C, D, F) from Community College of Philadelphia or any other college/university. Once a student has completed this form, he or she is strongly encouraged to meet with a Drexel University admissions representative and a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor to develop a course-taking strategy.

- A full-time student will be admitted with third-year (junior) status to Drexel University provided the student completes the appropriate associate degree program at Community College of Philadelphia.
