Community College of Philadelphia has three types of transfer agreements with Kutztown University: 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

Kutztown 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 Kutztown University. Kutztown 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 Kutztown University. 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

Kutztown University and Community College of Philadelphia have a core-to-core agreement. In this, Kutztown University agrees to accept the General Education embedded in Community College of Philadelphia’s Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) or Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees as meeting all the requirements of its general education which currently consist of university core requirements, university distribution requirements, and college distribution requirements. Depending on which program/college a student transfers into, specific general education courses may be required.

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 Kutztown University.

Dual Admissions Eligibility

Kutztown University welcomes applicants to the Dual Admissions Program in order to facilitate the transfer of students from Community College of Philadelphia to Kutztown University with third-year (junior) status for the purpose of entering a bachelor’s degree program. 
To be eligible for this program, students must:

  • Submit a dual admissions intent form before earning no more than 30 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 contact a Kutztown University admissions representative and meet with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor to develop a course-taking strategy.
  • Complete the Kutztown University admissions application and appropriate admissions materials 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.
  • Achieve a minimum Community College of Philadelphia cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (or a 3.0 in Education).
  • Enroll directly to Kutztown University within one year of completing an associate degree program of study from Community College of Philadelphia and not attend another institution between graduation and attendance at Kutztown University.

Note:

  • Students who have previously been matriculated to Kutztown University are not eligible for the Kutztown University dual admissions program.
  • A full-time student admitted with third-year (junior) status to Kutztown University will be able to complete most bachelor's degrees at Kutztown University within four regular (fall/spring) semesters provided the student completes the appropriate associate degree program at Community College of Philadelphia and completes the appropriate sequence of his/her remaining course work at Kutztown University.
  • Grades of “C” or higher will transfer to Kutztown University. The transfer of “D” grades will be reviewed in the same manner as the grading policy of native Kutztown University students so long as the student has earned their A.A., A.S., and specified A.A.S. degrees with a minimum GPA of 2.0 (3.0 for Education majors).

Advantages of Dual Admissions

Students who participate in dual admissions are eligible for the following benefits:

  • Application fee to Kutztown University will be waived.
  • A one-time book award to all first-time, full-time or part-time Community College of Philadelphia students earning an associate degree.
  • Scholarships for dual admissions students enrolled full-time (12 or more credits) or part-time (less than 12 credits) with an appropriate Community College of Philadelphia cumulative GPA.
  • Informational meetings with Kutztown University staff at Kutztown University’s campus and Community College of Philadelphia main campus for assistance in matriculating to Kutztown University.
