Temple University and Delaware County Community College Enhance Transfer Opportunities for Students
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • May 23, 2018)—The presidents of Temple University and Delaware County Community College signed an agreement today that will allow qualified associate degree graduates to transfer seamlessly into Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communication starting in the fall.
Known as a program-to-program agreement because it only applies to students within a specific major, the new agreement will allow graduates of the College’s Associate in Arts in Communication Arts: Communication Studies Option to transfer into Temple to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies: Communication & Entrepreneurship Track.
Under the agreement, students who meet the prerequisites will be required to complete 45, or more, General Education credits at Temple, unless they have been certified by Temple as having already met the General Education requirements. Students who have met Temple’s requirements may be able to complete the Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies: Communication & Entrepreneurship Track in four semesters. Temple requires all undergraduate degree candidates complete 45 hours of the last 60 hours of the degree, or program, at Temple.
To see how Delaware County Community College’s courses transfer to Temple, students should refer to Temple’s Transfer Equivalency Tool: https://admissions.temple.edu/transfer-equivalency-tool. Students also should meet with a transfer advisor at the College to review which courses transfer. In addition, inquiries specific to the Temple Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies program should be directed to Frank Bowman, Klein College of Media and Communication's Director of Enrollment Management, at 215-204-5712.
Delaware County Community College serves more than 23,000 credit and non-credit students online and at eight locations in Delaware and Chester Counties. The College, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, offers more than 50 associate degrees and 35 certificate programs.
