Community College Guides, Articulations, and Collaboratives

  • 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.
