Transfer Agreements

Transfer Agreements

Transfer Agreements are agreements between Community College of Philadelphia and four-year colleges that specify how and when you can transfer your associate degree. Many of these four-year colleges are local or regional.

To participate in these agreements, you must earn an appropriate associate degree before transfer. These agreements are not exclusive of one another. If you transfer to a school with more than one type of agreement, the agreements can complement one another.

Types of Transfer Agreements

Community College of Philadelphia has three types of transfer agreements: dual admissions, core-to-core and program-to-program.

Dual Admissions

Developed with area colleges and universities, dual admissions transfer partnerships are designed to help you seamlessly transfer to these colleges with junior standing after completing an associate degree here.

Core-to-Core

With these agreements, the approved associate degree programs are accepted because the general education requirements meet the core requirements of the transfer college's curriculum. If you earn an appropriate associate degree, usually an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science, the core requirements of the transfer college are satisfied except for the core courses required by the intended major (and in some cases the requirements that reflect the specific values of the transfer college, for example, religion or foreign language courses). The College has core-to-core agreements with the following:

  • Arcadia University
  • Cabrini University
  • Chestnut Hill College
  • Holy Family University (Community Bridge)
  • Kutztown University
  • La Salle University
  • Rosemont College (Gen Ed-to-Gen Ed)
  • Rutgers University - Camden
  • Temple University (Gen Ed-to-Gen Ed)

West Chester University offers students a similar benefit that they call Academic Passport.

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 in a specific bachelor's degree program at the transfer college. For information on specific agreements, use the table below to locate academic programs and colleges of interest.

The Academic Passport, a policy of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), guarantees admission to any of the 14 PASSHE universities to a student with an earned AA or AS degree from a Pennsylvania public community college. A university can stipulate that the associate degree contain at least 30 credits of liberal arts courses. The Academic Passport does not guarantee admission to specific majors.

Approved Academic Degree Programs

Typically, it is important that the associate degree you are pursuing appropriately prepares you to enter your intended bachelor’s degree. For example, you would earn your Associate in Science in Biology to help prepare you for your Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. This is typical of the traditional transfer process and is followed by most traditional transfer students.

But, you will notice that this list also includes bachelor’s degrees that just don’t seem to match such as an associate in Accounting for the Bachelor’s in Health Sciences at Jefferson University’s East Falls.

This is an example of what we call a degree completion program. These programs will accept all or most of the courses from any associate degree to satisfy half of a bachelor’s degree. Sometimes these programs are an appropriate match; for example, the associate in Business-General to Eastern University’s bachelor’s in Business Administration (Non-Traditional). At other times, these programs provide an opportunity to pursue a degree that is different than the associate degree major.

Students should meet with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor and ask the transfer institution for a transfer evaluation to find out if this is the best option for you.
