  • Bucks County Community College logoWelcome, Bucks County Community College students! Here’s everything you need to transfer to IUP. 

    IUP is ready to help you pursue your academic and professional aspirations in a way that suits your current needs.

    Use our Liberal Studies Equivalency Guide to help you to determine which courses to take at Bucks for maximum transferability of general studies courses.

    Use our Online Transfer Credit Equivalency System to assist you in determining how other courses not listed on the equivalency guide will transfer.

    Both of these tools are best used in conjunction with our Undergraduate Catalog, which indicates specific courses that must be taken in order to complete your degree at IUP.

    Reverse Transfer

    IUP has partnered with Bucks and the 13 other Pennsylvania community colleges to help our students obtain a degree/credential from the community college. The statewide Reverse Transfer initiative identifies students who may be eligible based on credit earned at both Bucks and IUP.

    Once you’ve received an e-mail from our Transfer Services office indicating your eligibility, you’ll want to complete the Transcript Release Form that will allow us to forward your IUP transcript to Bucks for review to determine any associate degree award for which you may be eligible.
