Community College of Philadelphia has three types of transfer agreements with Rutgers University - Camden: 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

Rutgers University - Camden 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 Rutgers University - Camden. Rutgers University - Camden 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 Rutgers University - Camden. 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

Rutgers University - Camden and Community College of Philadelphia have a core-to-core agreement. In this, Rutgers University - Camden agrees to accept the General Education embedded in Community College of Philadelphia’s Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) or Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree as meeting all the requirements of its undergraduate General Education requirements.

This core-to-core agreement applies to all A.A., A.S. and 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 Rutgers University - Camden.
