Preface

Delaware County Community College (DCCC) and Albright College enter into this Dual Admissions and Core-to-Core Transfer Agreement to facilitate the transfer of DCCC students to Albright College's Day and Accelerated Bachelor's Degree Programs.


Albright College's Traditional Program

Under the Dual Admissions Agreement, DCCC graduates will be guaranteed admission into a traditional day undergraduate bachelor's degree program with junior status at Albright College on the condition that they:

Students are required to complete at least 16 courses at Albright in order to receive their bachelor's degree from Albright. This Dual Admissions agreement is designed to provide a seamless transfer.

This agreement will provide a seamless/integrated approach that will apply all coursework taken as part of an Associate in Art (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) and Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) program at DCCC toward the Accelerated Degree Program at Albright College.

A.F.A. students will need to complete ENG 112 at DCCC or the equivalent at Albright.

Along with Core-to-Core transfer benefits, Associate in Art (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.), and Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree recipients will be eligible for a $2,800 total scholarship distributed across four semesters ($700 per semester).

Students will be permitted to transfer up to 48 approved elective credits towards an Albright College degree in the Accelerated Degree Program, along with another potential 30 credits in general education, which should benefit the A.A.S. transfer student.
     
  4. Admission, advising, registration and required coursework materials of prospective and enrolled students in the Accelerated Degree Program will be the responsibility of Albright College.
     
  5. DCCC agrees to assist Albright College in marketing the Accelerated Degree Program, specifically our onsite partnership with Delaware County Community College.

  7. Students participating in this agreement cannot attend another college or university between the time of graduating from DCCC and entering Albright College.

Revision, Renewal and Termination of this Agreement

The Albright College offices of Academic Affairs and Enrollment Management and the appropriate offices at DCCC are responsible for identifying, and communicating to each other, changes in the policies or requirements of their respective institutions that affect this Agreement.

This revised and renewed Dual Admissions and Core-to-Core Transfer Agreement becomes effective upon the signing of this agreement.
