View Institution Transfer Agreement

Community College of Philadelphia has two types of transfer agreements with Peirce College: dual admissions and program-to-program. To benefit from any of these agreements students must earn an appropriate associate degree before transfer. These agreements are not exclusive of one another and the agreements can complement one another.

Dual Admissions

Peirce College and Community College of Philadelphia have developed a dual admissions agreement. This agreement is designed to assist students who earn an appropriate associate degree to transfer to Peirce College. Peirce College guarantees admissions on the condition that students meet all the requirements.

Admissions into a particular major is not guaranteed. Upon transfer, students earn junior standing for matching majors. Support and financial incentives, including scholarship awards, are built-in to offer students the best opportunity for success.

Dual Admissions Eligibility

Students who do not qualify for dual admissions, are still eligible to transfer to Peirce College. Please review the list of approved programs below and visit with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor for further assistance.

Program-to-Program

These are agreements in which an entire curriculum or program of study is accepted, so graduates of these specific associate degree programs transfer with advanced standing to a matching specific bachelor's degree program at Peirce College.

Dual Admissions Eligibility

Peirce College welcomes applicants to the Dual Admissions Program in order to facilitate the transfer of students from Community College of Philadelphia to Peirce College with third-year (junior) status for the purpose of entering a bachelor’s degree program.

To be eligible for this program, students must:

  • Submit a dual admissions intent form before earning no more than 45 graded college level credits (grades of A, B, C, D, F) from Community College of Philadelphia or any other college/university. Students completing this form are strongly encouraged to contact a Peirce College admissions representative and meet with a Community College of Philadelphia academic advisor or counselor to develop a course-taking strategy.
  • Complete the Peirce College admissions application and appropriate admissions materials during the last semester at Community College of Philadelphia.
  • Graduate from Community College of Philadelphia with an Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) or Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in one of the approved programs listed.
  • Achieve a minimum Community College of Philadelphia cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 within an associate program of study. Only courses with a grade of C or higher will be eligible for transfer.
  • Enroll directly to Peirce College within one year of completing an associate degree program of study from Community College of Philadelphia and not attend another institution between graduation and attendance at Peirce College.

To submit a Dual Admissions intent form, login to MyCCP and find “Transfer/Dual Admissions” on the top right side of the MyGPS tab.

  • Students who have previously been matriculated to Peirce College are not eligible for the Peirce College dual admissions program.
  • A full-time student admitted with third-year (junior) status to Peirce College will be able to complete most bachelor's degrees at Peirce College within four regular semesters provided the student completes the appropriate associate degree program at Community College of Philadelphia and completes the appropriate sequence of their remaining course work at Peirce College.
