As one of Pennsylvania’s public universities within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), Bloomsburg Commonwealth University is a member of the Pennsylvania Statewide Transfer System, dedicated to accepting the transfer of Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees into parallel baccalaureate programs with full junior standing, recognizing all the competencies attained within the associate degree programs.

Courses from the 30 credit framework are recommended to be integrated into a student's degree program at Community College of Philadelphia.


The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) institutions recognize that students who transfer from Community College of Philadelphia with an Associate of Science or an Associate of Arts degree:

(PASSHE Transfer policy.)
