Community College of Philadelphia has three types of transfer agreements with La Salle 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.
La Salle 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 La Salle University. La Salle 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 La Salle University. Please review the list of approved programs below and visit with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor for further assistance.
La Salle University and Community College of Philadelphia have a core-to-core agreement. In this, La Salle University’s core is essentially fulfilled by the degree requirements at Community College of Philadelphia.
La Salle University recently changed its core curriculum. While La Salle University previously required one course in each Philosophy and Religion from dual admission students, they will now only require one, REL 100: Religion Matters, which is an interdisciplinary study of religion and theology. This class is only offered at La Salle University. This change will impact students entering La Salle University for the Fall 2019 semester and for all dual admission students moving forward.
This core-to-core agreement applies only to students who participate in dual admissions. Core-to-core transfer does not alter the requirements of the student's major field of study.
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 La Salle University.
