PREFACE
Immaculata University welcomes students from Delaware County Community College (DCCC) into our community of learners. The Dual Admission Transfer Agreement is designed to facilitate DCCC students’ ease of transfer into Immaculata University.

Under this Agreement, DCCC students admitted to any DCCC Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A), Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S), or Associate in Science (A.S.) degree program are eligible to complete a Dual Admission “Intent to Enroll Form.” This Agreement entitles students to be admitted into a parallel undergraduate program at Immaculata University through either the College of Undergraduate Studies (as a full-time student) or through the College of LifeLong Learning’s programs (as full-time or part-time student) provided that students:

Immaculata University’s prelicensure nursing program and majors that require continued study at third party partner schools are not included in the Dual Admission agreement. DCCC students may apply to these programs, but admission is not guaranteed.

1. Complete a “Dual Admission Program Intent to Enroll Form” at the time of admission to DCCC, or no later than when they have completed 30 college transferable credits, including DCCC courses and those from other colleges and universities.

8. Understand that if they were previously enrolled at Immaculata University, they are not eligible for this agreement.
9. Submit official DCCC transcripts along with official transcripts from any other colleges or universities they may have attended prior to attending DCCC.

Additionally, students seeking to enter the College of Undergraduate Studies as a full-time student must to enroll at Immaculata University as a full-time student in the College of Undergraduate Studies within one year of graduating from DCCC and not attend another institution between graduation and enrollment at Immaculata University to benefit from Dual Admission.
