The PA Transfer Credit Framework was developed among these universities and PA community colleges. This Framework allows students to transfer up to 30 credits of foundation courses from Bucks County Community College to any of the PASSHE universities or other PA community colleges and have those courses count toward graduation. The Framework includes courses in English, public speaking, math, science, art, humanities, history and the behavioral and social sciences.
Additionally, there are Statewide P2P Articulation Agreements that allow students who graduate with specific associate degrees to transfer as juniors into a bachelor’s degrees in similar fields of study at PA TRAC colleges.
