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 Psychology at DCCC into Temple's Bachelor of Arts in Psychology program.

Once students transfer to Temple University they shall be able to complete the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology within four regular semesters of full-time enrollment, assuming that no remedial or repeated courses are needed, that the recommended courses are successfully completed, and all applicable Temple grade and other requjrements are met to the satisfaction of Temple.

Students who complete the Delaware County Community College curriculum specified in the required course equivalencies table on page 4 of this agreement are guaranteed the transfer credlt 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 agreemenl 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 Psychology.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ADMISSION TO TEMPLE

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.

2) Evaluation of transfer credits is based on a student's major, and the student's Temple school/college makes the final determination of which transfer credits are applicable to the student's degree program. Transfer evaluations may change for students who change majors.

3) Because the DCCC Associate in Science Degree in Psychology covered by this program-to-program articulation agreement is also approved for GenEd{o-GenEd 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 GenEdto-GenEd Transfer agreement. Their GenEd requirements are met by receipt
of the Delaware County Community College A.S. degree.

4) 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. lf a matriculated student previously took Temple courses on a non-matriculated basis, lhose courses are counted towards this requirement.

JOINT RESPONSIBILITIES FOR MAINTENANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT

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

Temple University's College of Liberal Arts will keep appropriate Temple offices and staff (including the Office of the Undergraduate Studies and the Admission’s office) informed of this agreement and any modifications thereto, and will be responsible for distributing information concerning any changes.

Both institutions will encourage Delaware County Community College students to meet with representatives ol 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 to discuss issues of curriculum and student development.

Temple University's College of Liberal Arts and the Transfer Office at Delaware County Community College 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 the Fall 2019 Semester and will be reviewed annually by Temple University College of Liberal Arts and the Transfer Office at Delaware County Community College and will automatically be renewed until superseded by a new agreement, addendum, or formal termination. 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 the Office of Undergraduate Studies at Temple University 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.

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 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.
