Community College Guides, Articulations, and Collaboratives

Make your move from a community college to Indiana University of Pennsylvania. We’ve already set things up with several community colleges around Pennsylvania by making collaborative agreements for special programs.

All programs covered by the statewide P2P agreements can be found in the Online Transfer Credit Equivalency System by selecting the community college and selecting “Agreements.” Below, you will find available Liberal Studies guides for the community colleges to aid in your planning. We have also listed any special agreements with IUP.

Reverse Transfer is available to qualified students at all of the colleges listed so you can earn your associate’s degree while moving forward toward your bachelor’s degree.

Learn more about the special agreements IUP has with community colleges by speaking with a transfer counselor in the Office of Transfer Services at IUP or at the community college.

PA Transfer and Articulation Center

In July 2006, the Pennsylvania Department of Education began implementation of Article XX-C of the Public institution Code of 1949. Intended to create a seamless statewide transfer and articulation system, this legislation requires Pennsylvania's 14 community colleges and the 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education to adopt mandatory equivalency standards for the purpose of creating at least 30 hours of foundation courses that can be easily transferred to any of the participating institutions and to establish an electronic portal for providing public access to transfer information.

In addition, statewide program to program (P2P) articulation agreements between the community colleges and State System institutions have been developed. Those students in an approved program at the community college can expect to have all of their credits transfer and apply to their graduation requirements here at IUP. See a listing of approved programs.
