Community College of Philadelphia has three types of transfer agreements with Temple 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.
Temple 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 Temple University. Temple 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.
Core-to-Core (Gen Ed-to-Gen Ed)
Temple University and Community College of Philadelphia have a core-to-core agreement known as Gen Ed-to-Gen Ed. In this, Temple University agrees to accept the General Education embedded in Community College of Philadelphia’s Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degree as meeting all the requirements of its undergraduate General Education requirements except for two writing intensive courses to be completed at Temple.
To be eligible for Gen Ed-to-Gen Ed a student must complete the following before transfer to Temple University:
- a total of five humanities and social science courses (ENGL 101 and 102 plus three courses),
- one math course higher than FNMT 118, and
- one lab science course.
This Gen Ed-to-Gen Ed agreement applies to all A.A. and A.S. degrees and is not limited to students who participate in dual admissions. Gen Ed-to-Gen Ed transfer does not alter the requirements of the student's major field of study.
Temple University’s “45+ Gen Ed” policy is a reduced general education policy for students who:
- earn an A.A. or A.S. degree without satisfying above categories,
- earn an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.), or
- transfer without earning an associate degree but have earned at least 45 transferrable credits.
Students will be responsible for satisfying Temple University’s full general education requirements if they transfer to Temple University with less than 45 transferrable credits.
Please review Temple University General Education Requirement Options for details or visit a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor for further details.
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 Temple University.
