Delaware County Community College (DCCC) and Temple University {Temple) enter into this agreement in order to facilitate the transfer of students who have earned the Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration at Delaware County Community College into the Bachelor of Business Administration program of the Fox School of Business and Management at Temple University. Once students transfer to Temple University they shall be able to complete a Bachelor of Business Administration within four regular semesters of full-time enrollment, assuming that no remedialor repeated courses are needed and all applicable Temple grade and other requirements are met to the satisfaction of Temple. Specialized programs, including Actuarial Science, Entrepreneurship, and Management Information Systems, may require more than four regular semesters to complete.

Students who complete the Delaware County Community College curriculum specified in the "required course equivalencies" section (page 5) ofthis agreement are guaranteed the transfer credit for courses indicated in that section. Courses not listed there, but brought into Temple in transfer by a student covered by this agreement, will be granted credit according to standard Temple-Delaware County Community College equivalencies.

This agreement does not change the regular Temple policy that grants transfer credit to courses taken elsewhere only if they were completed with a grade of C or higher.

Students who transfer under the terms of this agreement are responsible for meeting requirements in their major field of study, and any other curricular requirements applying to all Temple students, that were in effect at Temple at the time of their admittance to Temple. These students will abide by the policies and procedures, and any revisions thereof that apply to all Temple students.

This agreement does not cover students who transfer from Delaware County Community College to Temple without an Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration.
Students transferring to Temple University and the Fox School for the Fall20l0 semester and after will be covered bythis agreement. Students transferring to Temple University and the Fox School prior to Fall 2010 are covered under a separate agreement.

Students who take advantage of this agreement are also encouraged to sign the Dual Admissions Intent to Enroll Form.

1. Students entering Temple under the terms of this agreement must meet all regular Temple admissions requirements and all applicable Temple requirements and deadlines pertaining to application for admission and payment of tuition and fees.

3. Because the Delaware County Community College Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration covered by this program-to-program articulation agreement is also approved for Core- to-Core Transfer to Temple.  Students under this program agreement satisfy Temple General Education (GenEd) requirements according to the terms of the Delaware County Community College-Temple Core oCore Transfer agreement.
