Temple University Mechanical Engineering Articulation Agreement

ARTICULATION AGREEMENT
Between Delaware County Community College and
TEMPLE UNIYERSITY Of The Commonwealth System of Higher Education for
Associate in Science in Engineering to Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
(EFFECTIVE FALL 2018)

The Delaware County Community College (DCCC) and Temple University (Temple) enter into this agreement in order to facilitate the transfer of students with an Associate in Science in Engineering from DCCC to Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Temple University.

Once students transfer to Temple University, a full-time student will be able to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Temple within four regular semesters at Temple Uriiversity, and assuming that no remedial or repeated courses are needed and all applicable Temple grade and other requirements are met to the satisfaction of Temple.

Students who complete the DCCC curriculum specified on page 4 of this 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 matriculation 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 the Delaware County Community College to Temple without first completing the Associate in Science in Engineering.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ADMISSION TO TEMPLE

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.

Temple requires that all Oansfer courses are completed with a grade of C or higher. Consequently, Delaware County Community College courses equivalent to Temple courses, taken under the terms of this agreement, will receive bansfer credit at Temple only if completed with a grade of C or higher.

Because the Community College Associate of Science in Engineering is approved for GenEd-to- GenEd Transfer to Temple, students under this program agreement satisfy Temple General Education Curriculum (GenEd) requirements according to the terms of the Community College- Temple GenEd-to-GenEd Transfer agreement. Their GenEd requirements are met by receipt of the Community College A.S. degree.

Temple University requires that all undergraduate degree candidates complete 45 hours of the last 60 hours of the degree or program as matriculated students at Temple University. If a matriculated student previously took Temple courses on a non-matriculated basis, those courses are counted towards this requirement.

JOINT RESPONSIBILITIES FOR MAINTENANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT

The Delaware County Community College will maintain and distribute irifortnation about the current form of this agreement, and any changes relevant to it, to students, counselors, advisors, and faculty.

Temple University's Coflege of Engineering will keep appropriate Temple offices and staff(including the Office of Undergraduate Studies and Admissions office) informed of this agreement and any modifications thereto, will post needed DARS exceptions specified in the agreement, and will be responsible for distributing information concerning any changes.

Both institutions will encourage Delaware County Community College students to meet with representatives of Temple University to discuss issues related to admissions and financial aid well in advance of their expected date of entry.

Faculty from each institution teaching in the curriculum for which this agreement has been developed will be encouraged to meet at least once annually to discuss issues of curriculum and student development.

REVISION, RENEWAL AND TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT

Temple University’s College of Engineering and the Delaware County Community College Transfer Office are responsible for identifying, and communicating to each other, changes in their respective courses, requirements, or policies that affect this agreement.

This agreement will be in effect as of Fall 2018, will be reviewed annually by Temple University’s College of Engineering and the Delaware County Community College Transfer Office, and will automatically be renewed until superseded by a new agreement or formally terminated. Revisions in the course equivalency lists may be made with the verbal consent of the representatives of the two schools; major revisions to this agreement require their signatures on a letter of agreement or a revised version of the agreement. All revisions, however, require that documentation is sent and approved by Temple’s Office of Undergraduate Studies to ensure that updates are made to the appropriate systems in order to effectively implement this agreement. Either institution may terminate this agreement at any time by written notice at least one year in advance of the effective date of termination. Should this agreement be terminated, it is understood that the termination will not apply to students already accepted to Temple University under the terms of this agreement, but not yet enrolled in classes at Temple.

The Delaware County Community College and Temple University understand that they shall act in an independent capacity in the performance of this agreement, and shall not be considered as employees, agents, affiliates, or subsidiaries of each other. Neither Temple nor the Delaware County Community College have the right to bind or obligate one another in any manner inconsistent with or unrelated to this agreement. This agreement is governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
