Transfer Agreements

Bucks courses transfer!  Even without formal agreements, your Bucks program can prepare you for the college of your choice.  However, many colleges and universities have made the transfer planning process even smoother by providing several types of transfer agreements.

  • Core-to-Core agreements mean that, with the completion of an associate degree, the general education (core) requirements have already been completed when you transfer to the agreement school.  Bucks has formal core-to-core agreements with Albright College, Arcadia University, LaSalle University, and Temple University.  Several other schools, including Cedar Crest College and DeSales University, provide exemption from some, or all, core requirements for students completing a Bucks degree.
  • Transfer Intent Agreements (sometimes called Dual Admission Agreements) assure admission (either to the school or only to specific programs) when students complete a Bucks degree and meet certain admission requirements.
  • Program-to-Program agreements outline exactly what courses a student should take as part of an associate degree in order to transfer at the junior level in a specific major.  Bucks has program agreements with many schools.  These valuable outlines can be found on the Transfer Services web site at www.bucks.edu/transfer.    
  • Many schools have given us information specifying how Bucks courses transfer to their colleges. Course Equivalency lists (also at www.bucks.edu/transfer) can help you choose transferable courses.

Some schools, such as Temple University, have several agreements with Bucks.  Temple has a Core-to-Gen Ed agreement, which assures that students completing an Associate Degree at Bucks will satisfy all Temple’s General Education requirements, a Dual Admission agreement, and several program agreements.
