Types of Transfer Agreements

The Delaware County Community College Transfer Office looks to develop new academic opportunities, and has entered into a number of agreements with various colleges and universities that directly benefit students. Among these special opportunities the Transfer Office has partnered with several institutions to form dual and guaranteed admission, and core-to-core articulation agreements.

Dual Admission

A Dual Admission agreement guarantees admission to the partner college or university and can also guarantee admission to a particular bachelor's degree if specified. Students must complete an Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.), or Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree pursuant to the articulation specifications. All Dual Admission agreements offer merit based scholarships and an application fee waiver. 

Guaranteed Admission

Students completing certain degrees at Delaware County Community College may qualify for guaranteed admissions to similar programs at colleges or universities where a Guaranteed Admission Agreement has been established.

Core-to-Core Articulations

Core-to-Core articulations document a particular college's or university's promise to accept the general education credits embedded in a specific Delaware County Community College degree. Even though some exceptions apply, students will receive credit for the general education or core requirements of that institution. See individual articulation agreements for specifics.

Below are listings of the specific relationships that the College has documented with a number of colleges and universities. Keep in mind, there may be requirements, restrictions or limitations with an agreement including:

  • A minimum GPA
  • Completion of an "Intent to Enroll" form prior to the completion of 30 college transferrable credits. Some agreements have other specifications, please check the agreement or speak with a transfer advisor early on in your tenure at the College up to a year before graduation
  • Only certain degree programs may apply

Other (less specific) agreements are on the right. Agreements vary and students should review them carefully. If you plan on transferring to one of these, or some other institution when you complete your associate degree at Delaware County Community College, be sure to get in touch with one of our transfer advisors.
