Agreement/Transfer Information

Core-to-Core Agreement

Arcadia University agrees to accept the general education embedded in the Bucks A.A. and A.S. degrees as meeting all the requirements of its undergraduate general education requirements, except for the Global Connections Experience and Reflection and the Senior Capstone Course.  (In the case where the student does not earn a “B” or better in English Composition I, a placement exam will be administered.)  The Core-to-Core agreement allows the transfer student to concentrate primarily on completing the remaining courses in the major during the junior and senior years.

Guaranteed Transfer Admissions Agreement

Under the Guaranteed Transfer Admission Agreement, Bucks students will be guaranteed admission into a bachelor’s degree program with third year (junior) status (except for BFA Acting, Studio Art and Art Education students, as well as Pre-PA and Pre-PT) at AU on the condition that they:

  • Graduate from BCCC with an A.A. or A.S. degree,
  • Earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5,
  • Enroll at AU within one year of graduation from Bucks,
  • Do not attend another institution of higher learning between the time they graduate from Bucks and enroll in AU,
  • Complete a  Guaranteed Transfer Admission Intent  form at the time of admission to Bucks, or no later than they have completed 30 transferable credits, and
  • Satisfy all other regular AU admissions requirements.

The Guaranteed Transfer Admission agreement provides:

  • A full time student admitted with junior status to AU will be able to complete a Bachelor’s degree program at AU within four regular semesters, provided that the student completes the eligible Bucks program and appropriately sequences and completes his/her remaining course work at AU.
  • Application fee will be waived for students who enroll at AU pursuant to this agreement.
  • Scholarships will be awarded based on final Bucks GPA.
