WHAT: Community College of Philadelphia and Kutztown University are entering into a dual admissions transfer partnership that will provide students with a seamless transfer path to Kutztown and save them money.

Transfer has been and continues to be a popular goal for a large proportion of incoming community college students. The U.S. Department of Education indicates that between 50 percent to 80 percent of all incoming community college students seek to transfer and earn a bachelor’s degree. Moreover, community college is an affordable route to a degree.

The structure of the program between the College and Kutztown is designed under a core-to-core agreement that makes the transfer process more streamlined. Kutztown agrees to accept all the credits embedded in the College’s Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) or Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees as meeting all the requirements for general education, which currently consist of university core requirements. Core-to-core applies to all students at the College who earn an A.A., A.S. and A.A.S. without submitting a dual admissions intent form.

A student that selects to enter Kutztown under dual admissions can do so before earning no more than 30 college-level credits and is advised to meet with counselors from both the College and Kutztown to develop a course-taking strategy. Students must earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0. Both full-time and part-time students who enter under dual admissions are eligible for scholarships.

The College currently offers 14 dual admissions partnerships with colleges and universities across the region.

People of the College

SHAWANA
I went to CCP for a while, then I stopped. I was laid off from my job last September. One of my goals was to just focus on school. So when I was laid off, I took the opportunity to come back. Because of CCP’s policies, a lot of my classes transferred and I was able to come back and only take about three to four classes. My plan after graduation is to begin at La Salle while working part time. My education is so important. I let my work get in the way previously; now I’m taking my education seriously!
KAVON
I’m currently at Temple University studying Theater and Business Administration. In my high school, I was encouraged to think outside of the box and think about time management. My counselor from my high school recommended we go to CCP first because the College adds a lot of value and character for students. I ended up enrolling in CCP with a full ride!
PALUMA
I come from Puerto Rico, so the easiest way to transfer my credits and not have a big student loan was to come here to CCP. I was looking around at other colleges and CCP seemed like a really good fit for what I was looking for—and I heard good things. I’m glad I did.
SYMEON
My major here at the College is Business Administration. All of the ‘fun’ activities I thought were just for ‘fun’ as a kid were actually business-related so I decided that would be the best career to get into.
